Tech View :: 'Nifty undertone to stay bullish as long as it holds 23,400'

The market consolidated within a range, with the index stuck between 23,400 and 23,650. The undertone remains bullish as long as the index sustains above the 23,400 support, where aggressive put writing is visible. Surpassing the 23,650 mark will open further room towards the 23,800/24,000 levels

Tech View :: 'Break below 51,000 will dampen sentiment in Nifty Bank'

The Bank Nifty Index continued its strong momentum and managed to hold the support at 51,200-51,000. The bullish momentum is likely to continue, and dips should be utilized to buy the index targeting 52,200/52,600. The lower-end support is placed at 51,000, where the highest open interest is built up on the put side. A break below this level will only dampen the bullish sentiment.

Comment :: 'Budget, FII flows to sway markets in near-term'

Despite experiencing significant volatility, the domestic market concluded the day positively.

In the near term, market attention is expected to centre around the upcoming Union budget and the progress of the monsoon.

On the global front, the decline in US bond yields has facilitated robust FII inflows in recent days. The fertilizer stocks exhibited good momentum, driven by the proposed removal of GST & hike in MSP.
