Daily Stock Market Report: October 17

Nifty 50 opened positively with a gap-up of 111.45 pts (0.56%). However, within the first 5 minutes, the index witnessed a decline and then traded sideways until noon.

However, the index experienced a sharp decline in the second half, partially filling the opening gap. But in the final moments of trading, it staged a recovery and closed with a gain of +0.40%.

Key Observations

  1. Despite the opening gap, the Nifty 50 struggles to cross the 19850 resistance level. Our outlook remains sideways until and unless the index crosses the 19850.
  2. The index appears to be moving into a range of 19850 - 19650 levels. Should the downward trend persist tomorrow, we may anticipate the index reaching the 19650 level in the upcoming sessions.
