Indian market witnessed hefty profit-booking at higher levels and slid sharply from its record highs. Nifty slipped back below 17,800, while Bank Nifty closed below 38,000 on September 28.
IT, realty and banking counters remained under pressure while oil and gas provided some support to the market.
Traders were seen shifting their positions to the October series contracts as we have the expiry of the September series futures and options contract this week.
We expect the market to remain volatile this week. For Nifty, 17,500-17,450 zone would act as strong support while on the higher side, now 17,850-17,950 zone will be strong resistance.
We expect Nifty to consolidate at higher levels for few sessions before surpassing the key psychological level of 18,000.
Here are three buy calls for the next 2-3 weeks:
