Technical Overview – Nifty 50

Benchmark is soaring following the breakout from the previous week. At its highest point, the index was 23,110.

A DOJI (indecisive) candle has formed on a daily time frame. High volatility was seen in the second half on the session, with a 200-point quick down move and a recovered 70 points back, the channel upper band is approaching the index and might act as resistance in upcoming sessions. The INDIA VIX, a measure of fear, is gradually reaching all-time highs as the election results approach, indicating that the following several days will be quite volatile. 

A mean reversion to the 10 and 20 DEMA is most likely anticipated in the benchmark index. The support levels 22,800 and 22,700 should be attentively watched in the upcoming sessions, while the resistance levels 23,150 and 23,250 can be considered.

Technical Overview – Bank Nifty

Throughout the day, the Banking Index performed better than the benchmark index, reaching a level of 49,680, which is only 285 points behind all-time highs.

Near its all-time high, the banking index created an inverted hammer/shooting star candle. In the final thirty minutes of the session, the index saw significant volatility, moving almost 400 points in that time. The previous 75-minute decline appears to be some profit booking ahead of the next election results. Future sessions will see continued volatility, and the index has to be actively monitored. 

In the banking index, a mean reversion to the 10 and 20 DEMA is probably in line. In the next sessions, the resistance levels 49,700 and 49,900 can be taken into consideration, while the support levels 48,600 and 48,450 should be closely monitored.
