Markets Ahead

The Indian stock markets are looking strong, which is evident in today’s closing. Opting option buying trades could be a good strategy in the upcoming days, especially during market dips or corrections. The all-time high (ATH) in Nifty and Bank Nifty can be expected before the state election results kick in!

Nifty: The immediate support for the index is near the round levels of 20,000. The resistance will be near 20,200 (ATH levels). So if there’s a gap down or gap up tomorrow, there could be buying seen again after some retracement. On the other hand, a flat opening may lead to a continuation of the up-move.

Bank Nifty: The index is at an interesting breakout resistance level of 44,600, also forming a cup and handle pattern. A breakout could take the index up to 46,000 levels (as it’s still far from ATH when compared to Nifty). Meanwhile, the key support to watch is near 44,400 levels. A breakdown from there may take BNF down to 44,000 levels.

As per reports, the Indian stock markets are expected to see an inflow of around ₹30,000 crore from a major US pension fund from 2024 onwards, which could give a boost to local stocks!
