Technical Overview – Nifty 50

The benchmark index NIFTY closed down just by -0.05%, or 11 points, to 22,957. The benchmark index reached the 23,000 milestone during today’s session. Because there was no obvious momentum on either side, the benchmark index finished flat, making the session uninteresting for option purchasers. Despite a slow day, the index managed to close higher than it did yesterday.

On-balance volume indication Additionally, volume has surpassed earlier volume thresholds, confirming a breakout. The 14-period RSI momentum indicator is very close to the over-bought zone 70. The trend of follow-up purchases appears to be lagging.

The benchmark index’s 22,850 and 22,750 zones serve as support levels. The levels 23,150 and 23,250 might be used as resistance levels in subsequent sessions.

Technical Overview – Bank Nifty

The day finished with a gain of 0.42%, or 203 points, for the BANK NIFTY index, which closed at 48,972. The Banking Index outperformed the benchmark index during the day, rising to the 49,050 level.

The banking index increased by 300 points, indicating follow-up buying. Even with 200-point volatility in the last 30 minutes of the session, the market managed to settle close to the day’s high. Positive momentum seems to be sustaining itself every day. Right now, the RSI momentum indicator is moving in the direction of the overbought region. 

Future session resistance levels are shown at 49,250, and 49,600, while future session support levels are shown at 48,600, and 48,250.
