What to expect today?

Yesterday NIFTY was in good bearish sentiment when it tested the support at 11,820 multiple times. But thanks to the moratorium case update, banks flew after 2 pm thereby taking NIFTY to 12,000 again. A perfect resistance was taken at 12,000. Click here for a detailed analysis of yesterday’s market and stock movements. 

Bank Nifty was the hero yesterday but it has taken a resistance at 24,000. Let’s see if 24,000 can be broken today.

Even though there were multiple factors that actually influenced NIFTY to go down, positive local cues coming in is reversing it and taking NIFTY up. Even the phenomenal results from Infosys and Tata Elxsi should further boost the positivity in the market.

The good result from the IT companies is like a double edged sword. Everything looks good right now. But what they have done is they have set high hopes for the results from other sectors as well. If those companies end up not matching these expectations, then we might see the market reacting negatively to it.

The resistance at 12,000 has been tested multiple times now. We can see higher highs if that is broken. 11,800-11,820 should act as a support now. So, if the market moves down and if 11,800 is broken, we might see a larger correction in NIFTY.

US Markets closed in red. Europe closed in red. Asian markets are mostly down. SGX NIFTY is trading at 11,988, which is 26 points higher, indicating a flat to gap up opening in the Indian Market. 

NIFTY is likely to trade between 11,900 and 12,100 today. There is support at 11,950 and 11,930 and resistance at 12,000 and 12,050.

Highest Call Open Interest at 12,500, followed by 12,000. Highest Put Open Interest at 11,500, followed by 11,000. 

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net bought shares worth Rs 821.86 crore, whereas domestic institutional investors (DIIs) net sold shares worth Rs 1,276.14 crore 

Thanks to INFY, the IT Sector might regain momentum today and thereby take NIFTY up. All the best for the day!
