On Wednesday, against the backdrop of the weekly expiration of index options, the Nifty would find resistance between the 16650 and 16700 levels
By Shrikant Chouhan
In this week, post muted opening the market is hovering in the range of 16500-16580. However, the medium-term texture of the market is bullish. On Tuesday, the market remained weak in the first half of the trading session. But in the late afternoon, once again bulls took the charge, and due to strong buying interest markets cleared intraday resistance of 16590 and succeeded to close above the same which is broadly positive. Now we can see value buying in financial, cement, and capital goods companies.
On Wednesday, against the backdrop of the weekly expiration of index options, the Nifty would find resistance between the 16650 and 16700 levels. On the other hand, 16500 and 16450 would serve as a major support level for the short term. The Bank Nifty has seen a bullish reversal after moving to the lower limit of the trading zone between 35600 and 36300. Based on that, the Bank Nifty should move towards the 36300 levels.
