As discussed earlier, the markets have turned bullish and buy-on-dips can be planned. The targets of 19,840 in Nifty and 45,370 in Bank Nifty were hit, and the bullishness could continue till immediate supports are breached.
Nifty: The index is near a very important resistance zone of 19,850-870. A breakout from this level can take the index to the all-time high (ATH) of 19,990 levels. Now, the important support zone for Nifty will be the previous swing of 19,730 levels. A breakdown from there with a re-test may take the index down to 19,680 and 19,630 levels.
Bank Nifty: The index finally broke out. Now, the immediate support to watch out for will be 45,150. A breakdown from there can take the index down to 45,000 and 44,800 levels. The immediate resistance would be 45,350. A breakout from that level can give us targets of 45,740.
The indices are on a strong uptrend. Many market participants are likely to buy during price dips, aiming to push the markets higher. This strategy is expected to continue until the key breakout levels of 19,640 in Nifty and 45,000 in Bank Nifty are maintained.
Meanwhile, global markets have stabilized today, while the U.S. Dollar appeared to be on its longest winning streak since 2014, thanks to a strong U.S. economy. Investors are anticipating that central banks will keep interest rates unchanged in the next two weeks.
