Tech View :: 'Overall sentiment for Nifty remains robust'

Nifty remained volatile throughout the day after an initial weak start attributed to negative global cues. Despite this, the overall sentiment remains robust as the index sustains itself above key moving averages. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicates bullish momentum in the short term. Over the short term, the index may trend towards 22,650. Support is positioned at 22,350 on the lower end.

Tech View :: Bank Nifty to consolidate in this range

The Bank Nifty index experienced buying pressure from lower levels and managed to sustain above the support zone of 47,500-47,400.

However, it faces immediate resistance at 48,000, and a decisive breakthrough could trigger further short-covering rallies towards the 49,000 mark.

It's anticipated to consolidate within the range of 47,400-48,000 leading up to the RBI policy announcement, with potential trending moves expected thereafter.

BSE Midcap index hits new high; analysts see more upside in months ahead

"The sell-off seen in March was par for the course. It is quite normal for the markets to see some profit taking as the financial year ends.
