The highest CE OI is 21800, and the PE is at 21500 levels. This suggests that the markets are expected to revolve around these levels in the upcoming session.

The immediate support is between 21500 and 21450, while the resistance is at 21850 levels. Any further down move is expected to halt at the mentioned support zone, given its historical resilience. Hence, this zone is anticipated to be a key focus for traders.
