The daily candle is a green one on an opening basis, but with a huge wick on the upper side. But the market condition is still good since we are trading well above 17,450. Due to the weekly expiry and the previous day’s fantastic rally, volatility was obvious. I will be watching three levels on the upper side 17,600, 17,725 and 17,780. Supports are expected at 17,450, 340 and zone around 17,200.
One interesting thing to note is that, unlike Nifty, Bank Nifty traded within the opening levels throughout the day.
