Tech View :: Two technical indicators suggest bullish momentum in Bank Nifty

The Bank Nifty index found strong resistance at 49,500-49,600 due to visible selling pressure, while 49,000 serves as a robust support level.

The momentum indicator RSI at 61 and the index maintaining above its 14-day EMA indicate a bullish undertone.

A buy-on-dips strategy is recommended, with a stop-loss set at 48,700. On the higher end, 49,500-600 might continue to remain a strong resistance

Tech View :: How to trade Nifty? Check key levels to watch

Significant Call writing was observed at the 23,000 strike price, followed by the 23,100 and 22,900 strikes.

In comparison to the heavy Call writing, Put writers were less active, leading to a decline in the PCR. The high India VIX suggests that market volatility might remain elevated.

On the higher end, the 22,950-230,00 zone might act as a strong resistance, and any rise may attract selling pressure. On the lower end, the Nifty might drift down towards 22,800/22,600.

Lok Sabha 2024 poll outcome: Retail investors' boldest bet in 10 years

“The probability of the NDA not forming the government is very low. Though India VIX has spiked to 26 levels now as compared to 10.3 levels in April 2024, it is still much lower than the 35-odd levels seen in 2019. That said, retail investors can hedge their position by buying ‘Puts’. I expect profit booking to set in post the Lok Sabha poll outcome is known. The Nifty50 index can slip 3 – 4 per cent,” he said.
