The market could not sustain the corrective bounce back for another week. The Nifty closed below its 5-DMA (10,465) suggesting weakness in benchmark index in the very short term.

As of now, Nifty has to sustain above 10,290 to avert any weakness. If this level is breached we will again see the index struggle to find a base around its previous lows and it can slip down to 10,200 and 10,100 levels.


Nifty witnessed resistance near 10,705. The gap above 10,740 will continue to provide resistance to the Nifty. Also, the downward sloping trend line on lower time frame is likely to provide resistance to prices around 10,626 in very short term.

In an immediate sense, a breakout is expected to come only above 10,520-10,540 zone from where it can extend up to 10,750 and 10,850. This view will be negated if it gets below 10,290.

A high Open Interest (OI) in Put is seen around 10,000 strikes followed by 10,200 strikes where the highest addition of OI is also seen, whereas maximum OI in Call at 11,000, followed by 10,600. Moreover, options data indicates an immediate trading range between 10,200 and 10,800.

10,200 on the Nifty is the trend decider as a close below 10,200 will push benchmark index towards 10,100 and swing bottom near 9,950.

Bank Nifty has a strong support near 25,000 psychological levels. Since last few sessions, the index is respecting this zone (24,800-25,000). Nevertheless, these immediate support levels should provide strong support, unless Bank Nifty decisively trades below it. We expect range-bound movement with a positive bias for coming sessions in a range of 26,000-24,800.
