Though Nifty had a down-trending day, Bank Nifty saw a good fight of buyers and sellers. The low was protected for most of the day and there came SBI induced volatility.
There is strength in the global markets. However, we rallied independent of the trend in the other markets. Will we fall without taking cues from the global markets?
At the same time, consensus is dangerous and when everyone was expecting the all-time high to be taken out, it did not happen. There is a possibility that a new ATH could be formed after a shake-out.
Friday is known for trending moves. Let us see if today is a trending Friday.
SBI results induced volatility in the market, as always. The results were good and have beaten street estimates. The expected net profits were 68% YoY and the figure came out at 83% YoY.
There are three red candles now in the day-chart for Nifty. 18,065 is a crucial swing point. The weekly candle is bearish and we have to see if it engulfs the previous candle.
Bank Nifty’s weekly candle is still green. However, you can see selling pressure.
I will watch 18,065 on the downside in NIFTY. 18,200 can be watched on the upside.
