Here’s what you should know before the opening bell: Nifty outlook Nagaraj Shetti of HDFC Securities said Nifty formed a small positive candle on the daily chart with minor upper shadow. This market action signals an upside bounce amid the range movement. Nifty is currently placed within a high low range of 19,450-19,350 levels. There is a higher probability of upside breakout of the range in the short term, he said. “Nifty as per weekly chart formed a small positive candle, that placed at the hurdle of 19,450-19,500 levels as per the concept of change in polarity. A decisive upside breakout above 19,500 could open renewed buying enthusiasm towards 19,800 and higher in the near term .Any weakness from here could find support around 19,250-19,300 levels,” he said. Nifty Bank outlook Rupak De, Senior Technical analyst at LKP Securities said Nifty Bank discovered support at the 21-day Moving Average (DMA). “The prevailing trend indicates a potential movement of the index towards 44,000-44,200. At the lower end, 43,500 is expected to serve as robust support. A breach below 43,500 could potentially lead the index towards the range of 43,000-42,800,” he said .
