The Nifty index has been firmly held by bears, indicating their strong control over the market. The index is currently facing significant resistance at the level of 18,400, which has proven to be a challenging barrier to overcome.

The ongoing battle between bulls and bears has resulted in the index trading within a consolidated range between 18,200 and 18,400 levels. However, a break above or below this range has the potential to trigger trending directional moves in the market.

Traders and investors should closely monitor the index for a potential breakout or breakdown, as it may indicate a shift in market sentiment and the beginning of a new trend.

Bank Nifty closed with selling pressure, breaking below the previous consolidation level. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is in a bearish crossover, indicating a negative sentiment.

The support level is placed at 43,500; a fall below 43500 may trigger a further correction in the Bank Nifty. Resistance levels are situated at 43,700 and 44,000, where Call writers are waiting for their positions.
