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

The Nifty opened on a flat note and consolidated for most part of the day to close marginally in the red down ~7 points. On the daily charts, we can observe that the consolidation between 19620 – 19875 has been going on for the past seven trading sessions. the daily momentum indicator has a positive crossover and thus this consolidation should be used as a buying opportunity. On the downside, until the zone of 19630 – 19600 is held we can expect the upside momentum to resume over the next few trading sessions which can take the Nifty towards 19900 – 19930 zone.
Bank Nifty
Bank Nifty witnessed the continuation of the pullback and closed well in the green. The pullback has more steam left and we expect it to continue till 44000 – 44200. On the downside 43300 is the crucial support that should not be breached for the pullback to continue.

Comment :: 'It is a healthy correction in Nifty'

It is a healthy consolidation in the Nifty so far and we feel only a decisive gap-up move above 19,850 could pave the way for a new high else range bound bias would continue. Participants should keep a close watch on the US markets and the performance of the banking majors for cues. Meanwhile, stay selective and avoid contrarian trades.
