What to expect today?

Yesterday, NIFTY opened with a gap up above 16,300 and immediately fell below 16,300. But then the index climbed up throughout the day to close 0.5% up at 16,364. You can read all about yesterday’s market movements here.

BANK NIFTY was more consolidating throughout the day. It took support at 35,800 multiple times and closed just below 36,000.

NIFTY IT specifically had a good day while most of the other sectors also performed well.

The European and US markets have closed mostly positively. Out of all the main indices, only FTSE closed in the red.

US jobless claims have reached near pandemic low as the economy is strengthening. The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits fell for a third straight time last week, the latest sign that employers are laying off fewer people as they struggle to fill a record number of open jobs and meet a surge in consumer demand.

The Asian markets are mostly in the red, with many more than 0.5% down. The US and European futures are flat, but in the red.

SGX NIFTY is trading flat at 16,374 indicating a flat opening in the Indian market. 

The immediate supports for NIFTY are at 16,340 and 16,290, with more strong supports at 16,200 and 16,150. Going ahead, 16,000 is likely to act as a key support for NIFTY. The all time highs are acting as a good resistance now.

The 35,800 zone is an important support for BANK NIFTY. The next support is at 35,500.

36,200-36,300 will act as an immediate resistance for the index. 36,500-600 is also an important resistance to be watched out for in BANK NIFTY. 

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net bought worth just Rs 212 crores, and domestic institutional investors (DIIs) also net bought shares worth Rs 307 crores in the Indian equity market. 

There are more puts in the system currently than calls, indicating less down side potential.

Since the Asian markets are weak, there is a chance that we might also become weak. If 16,290 is broken, NIFTY will get back into its consolidation range of 16,150 to 16,370.

For BANK NIFTY, I will be bearish if 35,700 is broken and I will be bullish if 36,350 is broken on the higher side.
