Yesterday, the markets remained within the trading range between 18660 - 18575 levels, leading to a Doji pattern on a daily time frame, indicating indecisiveness in the market.
Today, the market opened on a negative note as the Nifty 50 saw a gap down of -39.65 points (-0.21%), and Bank Nifty opened with a gap down of -118.35 points (-0.27%).
As discussed in yesterday's market review, the Nifty commenced the day with a bearish outlook by opening near the lower end of the trading range. Subsequently, it continued its downward movement, eventually breaching the range.
Also, we had anticipated a potential range breakout on the downside and identified 18450 - 18400 as the next significant support level. Remarkably, the Nifty index remained resilient, managing to sustain above the 18450 level throughout the day.
Nifty & BankNifty closed with a negative return of -0.53% & -0.69%, respectively.

Nifty’s Technical & Data Points:
- Nifty broke the lows of the last 2 days, confirming the bearish sentiments. If 18450 - 18400 is taken out, we expect the market to halt at its previous swing low at 18200 levels.
- As we approach tomorrow's expiry, it's important to note that today’s high will act as an immediate resistance around 18600 levels.
- The highest OI of CE is at 18600, and PE is at 18500. Markets are expected to revolve around these levels for this expiry. If 18500 PE writers start to unwind, we expect the market to head lower.
- Significant ITM writing has been observed at the 18500 and 18550 levels, further reinforcing bearish sentiment for tomorrow's trading session.
Levels worth monitoring tomorrow:
We expect tomorrow's expiry to commence on a bearish note. However, in the event of a gap up opening, the potential trapping of these writers could trigger an unwinding, resulting in a significant upward movement. Moreover, if the support range of 18450 - 18400 is breached, we expect the market to head towards the swing lows around 18200.
These were some of the pointers based on which we look forward to tomorrow’s expiry on a bearish note.
