Nifty can witness a pullback towards 11,400. Going forward a sustained trade above 11,400 may induce further rally towards 11,570.

However, the bearish trend has already started to weaken, at least for the very short term. In addition, the index is seen to have found initial support at a historical swing high on the daily chart.
On a Heiken Ashi plotting, the chart has been consolidating on the daily frame. All these indicate a short term pullback.
On the higher end, the Nifty can witness a pullback towards 11,400. Going forward, a sustained trade above 11,400 may induce a further rally towards 11,570.
On the flip side, the market may resume its southwards journey on a breakdown below 11,100. A close below 11,100 could take the index towards 10,900-10,700 levels.
