We saw good corrections in major indices today, and they are at major support zones: 19,300 in Nifty and 44,800 zones in Bank Nifty.
As we said in yesterday’s post-market report, if Nifty breaks the 19,440 level, we can see a fall to 19,350— and we saw that happen today! In Bank Nifty, we said that if the 45,100 zone is breached, we can expect a target of 44,700 (which is also the gap-filling region).
Nifty: The index is at a very important support zone of 19,300, and the resistance to be watched is the ATH at 19,520 zones. On an hourly time frame, the index is taking support according to the Fibonacci levels. If there is a breakdown from there, we can expect targets of 19,150 on the downside and the second target can be 19,020 in the coming week. If Nifty retraces from here, we can see another round of rally on the upside.
Bank Nifty: The index is looking much more weak than Nifty. It has broken down from the consolidation zone in which it was trading (45,400 and 45,100). Now, the immediate support is 44,700 and resistance will be 45,000 zones. If the support levels are beached, the index can fall to 44,500 zones. If the index goes back above 45,000, it can be in the sideways zone again.
