We had an all-time high close for NIFTY on Friday. Let us hope that the breakout sustains. The up-move on Thursday was strong and though we did not get a green candle on Friday, it was a bullish candle.
BANK NIFTY was hammered. However, the index is very near the 43K mark and thus, there is a possibility that the sector could guide the general market further.
On the other end, IT looks strong. With both IT and BNF in bullish mode, 19K is not a hard task for NIFTY.
I will be watching 2633 in Reliance since we had a very strong up-move from the heayweight’s side on Friday.
There are massive protests in China against the strict Zero Covid policies and that has led to the bearish start for the global markets this week. Dow futures also has reacted to it. Let us see if our markets slow down with negative global cues. Probably, there are market participants waiting for the dip to buy more.
I will be closely watching 18,400 on the downside and 18,600 on the upside.
