Max OI



The highest CE OI is 21500, and the PE is at 21000 levels. This suggests that the markets are expected to revolve around these levels in the upcoming session.

Levels Worth Monitoring Tomorrow

Today’s fall has halted at one of the previous gaps around the 21100 levels. The gap is expected to continue to act as support in the upcoming session.

If the price rebounds from the current market level, the 21350 level is expected to act as resistance in the short term.

On the other hand, if the support level is breached, the index may test the preceding gap around the 20500 level in the upcoming sessions.
