Tech View :: 'Nifty may fall to 22,300 if it doesn't firmly reclaim 22,500'

Nifty 50
On the daily charts, we can observe that the Nifty is in the process of retracing the rise it has witnessed from 22,054 – 23,111. The Nifty has now reached the support cluster of 22,460 – 22,500 where support parameters in the form of the 20-day moving average and the 50% Fibonacci retracement level are placed. We expect the Nifty to hold this crucial support zone and start the recovery process. In case of a breach, the next support is placed at 22,313 – 22,300.
Bank Nifty
On the daily charts, we can observe that it has recovered sharply from the 48,300 levels which coincided with the 20-day moving average and the 61.82% Fibonacci retracement level of the 47,435 – 49,689 rise. We expect the positive momentum to continue over the next few trading sessions. On the upside, we expect it to continue its momentum till 49,400 - 49,500.

Comment :: Why did markets fall today, May 30?

The benchmark index is taking cues from the US market as treasury yields continue to climb following the stickiness of global inflation, delaying the central bank’s interest rates cut policy.

Meanwhile, the broader market continued the weak trend, led by profit booking, due to feeble closing of monthly expiry owing to lack of interest to hold short-term positions, as exit poll is slated in the weekend.
