New India Assurance (+10%) surged on the back of strong volumes.

Markets Ahead

After the strong upward rally, major Indian indices experienced a slight retracement with some volatility today. However, the key support levels remained intact. This indicates that the markets continue to maintain a bullish stance.

Nifty: The major support to monitor is the round levels of 20,000. The immediate support is near 20,100. If there’s a breakdown from this level, the index could decline to 20,000 and further to 19,960 levels. Meanwhile, the resistance to keep an eye on is near the all-time high (ATH) level of 20,200.

Bank Nifty: The index is encountering resistance at the crucial breakdown levels of 44,600, where the cup and handle pattern was also formed. That level has to be taken out for the index to move to 45,000 and 45,500. On the other hand, the immediate support to observe is 44,300. If there's a breakdown from this level, the index could decline to 44,000 and 43,800 levels.

S&P Global Rating has upgraded India’s GDP growth from 6.0% to 6.4% for FY24. This has brought some optimism to the broad market.
