Comment :: What all happened in the markets today?

The domestic market rebounded from yesterday’s loss amidst volatility, despite weak global cues. The hopes for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war and the drop in crude oil prices supported the sentiment. However, the mid & small caps underperformed. The market is looking ahead to key economic data, both domestic and global, with US inflation grabbing the most attention, as that will provide fresh signals on interest rate cuts.

Tech View :: Key levels to watch on Nifty, Bank Nifty

On the daily charts, we can observe that the Nifty held on to the support zone of 22,100 – 22,070 where the 40-hour average was placed. Overall, the Nifty has been consolidating in the broad range (21,900 – 22,300) since the past few trading sessions.

The Bollinger bands are contracting indicating rangebound price action. The hourly momentum indicator has triggered a positive crossover which is a buy signal and thus intraday dips are likely to be bought into. On the downside, 21,900 shall act as a crucial support while 22,300 is the immediate hurdle.
