V-Shaped Recovery From Lows! Retracement or Trend Reversal Next? - Post-Market Analysis

Both indices witnessed strong buying at crucial support levels— covering the fall from the previous two sessions. This could just be a retracement of the fall from highs. So it's essential to see if the markets break major resistance levels for a confirmed reversal.
Nifty: On a 2-hour time frame, the index is moving in a range between 19,240 and 19,460 levels— giving moves on both sides. The index has to cross the 19,600 zone for a trend reversal (which also represents the 50% Fibonacci levels). Till then, the immediate resistance will be 19,460 levels. If that’s breached, 19,520 and 19,600 levels could be the targets. The important support to watch out for is the 19,390-400 levels. And if that’s broken, the index can fall to 19,360 and 19,300 levels again.
Bank Nifty: The index is also moving in a very wide range between 43,800 and 44,800 levels, giving volatile moves. This up-move can still be a retracement as the 50% Fib level in BNF at 45,000 has to be crossed for trend reversal. Until then, the index will still be under a bearish trend. Now, the important resistance is 44,500— and a breakout from there can give us targets of 44,800 and 45,000. The immediate support level to look out for is 44,200. A breakdown from that level can give us targets of 44,000 and 43,800.
Today’s market up-move can be attributed to positive global signals, a domestic manufacturing PMI that exceeded expectations, and encouraging GDP growth data. India’s S&P Global Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) surged to 58.6 in August from July's 57.7— reaching its highest point since May.
