Indian market began this week on a positive note with Nifty index surpassing 18,000 for the first time as PSU banks, auto and metal counters witnessed sharp upside moves.
On the derivatives front, a tug of war was witnessed among Call writers and Put writers at 18,000 strike and 17,800 strike, respectively. From a technical point of view, both the indices, i:e Nifty and Bank Nifty, can be seen trading in a rising channel with formation of higher bottom pattern.
For the upcoming sessions, markets are expected to trade with a positive bias. On the higher side, now any decisive move beyond 18,050 levels could add further buying momentum into index. As far as Bank Nifty is concerned, now 38,000-37,500 zone would act as a strong support for the index.
