NIFTY opened with a gap-up at 19,798 and had a volatile day. The index moved in a range of 200 points and closed at 19,749, up by 38 points or 0.19%. It was long unwinding we saw in Nifty as profit booking kicked in.
BANK NIFTY opened with a gap-up at 45,794 and formed a double top. There was a huge down-move to 45,370 and a bounce that got sold off quickly. BN closed at 45,410, down by 38 points or 0.09%.
IT moved up by 1.06%.
The US markets closed well in the green. The European markets also closed higher.
The Asian markets are trading mixed.
The U.S. Futures and European futures are trading mixed.
GIFT NIFTY is trading flat at 19,800.
All the factors combined indicate a flat to gap-up opening.
NIFTY has supports at 19,690, 19,600, 19,500 and 19,450. We can expect resistances at 19,820, 19,850 and 19,800.

That intraday red candle would have been a surprise to the bullish players. The indices moved down all of a sudden. Though there was a recovery move, it was quickly sold off.
It was a volatile day. However, option buyers who could execute the entries and exits well would have been able to land in profits. Option sellers who could not cut losses quickly would have found it hard to adjust the strikes and end in green.
US Retail sales came out less strong than expected.
It could be a buy-on-dip day as some profits booking has already happened. The candle on Monday was so big that the bulls would protect their positions vigorously.
There are strong support zones in BN and there could be a down-move followed by a recovery trapping the bears.
I will watch 19,650 on the downside in NIFTY. 19,820 can be watched on the upside.
