The Indian stock markets have been volatile lately. Today, we witnessed a sharp fall followed by a recovery. We can see that buyers are trying to support the markets, but there are major resistance levels ahead that have to be taken out for the markets to turn bullish again.
Nifty: The immediate resistance for Nifty is near 19,160 levels. If that is breached, the index may move up to the 19,240 resistance level. Meanwhile, a breakdown from the previous swing support of 19,090 could bring the index down to 19,000 and 18,950 levels, which would indicate major bearishness again.
Bank Nifty: The immediate resistance for BNF is near 43,050. A breakout from this level might take the index up to 43,350. On the other hand, the immediate support to watch out is near the previous swing of 42,900. A breakdown from there could bring the index back to 42,700 and 42,400.
Both indices are near their respective Fibonacci rejection levels. So if there’s a negative price action tomorrow, the index can turn bearish again. For a bullish reversal, 50% fib rejection levels of 43,350 in Bank Nifty and 19,350 in Nifty have to be crossed.
Market sentiment remains cautious in the short term, with investors closely monitoring geopolitical tensions in West Asia, upcoming corporate earnings, and key economic data, (including PMI figures for October).
