NIFTY respected all our major levels yesterday. And with the last 2 day candles, NIFTY is at the same level as Friday’s close. So till now for the week, NIFTY has had consolidation.
With today’s gap-down expected at 19,400, we should have a watch out for 19,300 as the first support. I would wait for the initial few candles before taking a position. Watch out for BANK NIFTY’s 43,680 level as well.
For the 3rd weekly expiry in the August series, let us hope the market will trade between 43,500-44,100 in BANK NIFTY and 19,250-19,550 on NIFTY.
And do remember, since it is an expiry day you can expect some volatility. So keep your eyes on the major levels and watch out for big candles!
