Market is indicating proper signs of a profit booking.
After last week's expiry,
- Nifty and Nifty IT have been moving down.
- Bank Nifty hit fresh all-time highs, but no major breakout happened.
- Nifty IT has broken the 200-Day EMA.
- Nifty FMCG saw buying.
- Fall in Nifty Auto after-sales data.
- Nifty PSU Bank broke out and hit the Fibonacci target/resistance.
- Nifty also hit the Fibonacci target
All these factors are indicating a proper profit booking that started one week ago. I am expecting this fall to enter more stocks in the coming week.
- Nifty - A very strong support from the 17,960-18,100 zone.
- Bank Nifty - Major support from the 40,500-40,800 zone.
- Fin Nifty - I will be watching 50-Day EMA and 18,700 levels as support.
- Nifty IT - 28-500-29,000 zone.
- Did you see how beautifully Fin Nifty is respecting 19,200 support? Let's watch that level also.
