It was the second day that NIFTY was attempting a breakdown below 17K. The level will be skipped with a gap-down today. We will have to see what happens after the open and it will be crucial. Sustaining 17K was very important for the bulls and thus, we can expect covering.
I will be watching 16,750 on the downside and 17,000 on the upside.
