PSU Banks moved up the most led by SBI. Metals and FMCG were the only sectors to close in the red.

With global and local positivity, and technical bullishness, it was expected NIFTY will move up this week. But this is a very strong move that we are seeing. As we have been seeing in the last 2 weeks, after a quick up move, NIFTY cools down creating a new higher low. That can be expected this week also.
Also, we have seen gap up openings of more than 100 points not sustaining. So watch NIFTY patiently for the first 15 minutes to understand today’s trend.
VIX is still very low and we have been seeing super steady movement in the market for many days.
There are high chances that NIFTY will sustain above 15,000 this week. This is the last week of the month and thus, we might see some volatility. Please take safe trades only.
