Nifty has fallen down from a sharp trendline which was being generated in its 5-minutes chart. The bullish phase of the index seems to be over for at least this week.

This was also indicated call writing in the market everywhere above 17,200. The immediate supports for NIFTY are at 17,080 and 17,000 and 16,900. Resistances are seen at 17,150 and 17,250.

Bank Nifty was really bullish yesterday morning, up nearly 600 points intraday. 37k was beautifully taken as resistance after breaking 36,800. Even today, these levels of 36,800 and 37,000 will be good resistance zones. 

The next supports are at 36,200, 36,000 and 35,720. Bank Nifty closed yesterday by testing the 36,500 support zone. We can see good Call and Put writing in the market, with most together seen at the 36,500 level. We may see consolidation around this level.

Reliance has been consolidating in the last two days. In fact, even when the market was in red yesterday, the stock showed strength. Keep a watch on the stock above yesterday’s highs, which was its highest since October 2020.

I will be following the trend of the day to trade, and I am mostly expecting a consolidation with a bearish bias. After breaking the trendline, Nifty might take some rest before its next rally. But also expect some intraday volatility as it is the first weekly expiry of the September series!
