What to expect today?

Yesterday, NIFTY opened with a gap up and moved up to cross the ever important mark of 15,000, went till nearly 15,050 and then fell heavily to 14,820. NIFTY consolidated with volatility to close below 14,900. You can read all about yesterday’s movements here.

Bank Nifty, also opened with a gap up and crossed 34,000 but could not sustain it. It fell till nearly 33,300 and closed at 33,714.

NIFTY METAL moved 4.53% up yesterday with JSWSTEEL up nearly 10%, all owing to the rising metal prices.

The European markets closed flat, slightly in the red. The US markets opened with a gap up, moved down and then climbed back up to close in the green and at record highs!

Asian markets are mostly down. European and US Futures are also down. SGX Nifty is currently trading lower at 14,777 indicating a gap down opening in the Indian market. 

A selling pressure was expected to kick in when NIFTY reached around 15,000. So, today’s gap down is understandable. If the strength in the rally was original, NIFTY shouldn’t fall much further. It should either consolidate or move a bit up.

So, it looks like 15,000 will act as a strong resistance for NIFTY.

34,000 and 34,500 are the immediate resistances to be watched out for in BANK NIFTY.

The immediate supports for NIFTY is at 14,700 – 14,750. Below that, we have supports at 14,600 and 14,500. 

Bank Nifty has supports at 33,200 and 32,900.
