Tech View :: 'Nifty, Bank Nifty finding support at lower levels'

On the daily charts, we can observe that dips towards the lower boundary 24,100 are being bought into, suggesting strong support at 24,150 – 24,100 zone. Going ahead, we expect the range bound price action to continue. Ideally dips towards the support zone should be used as a buying opportunity.
Bank Nifty
Bank Nifty's weekly Put-Call Ratio (PCR) improved from 0.67 to 0.81, implying puts being written during the fall today, and thus strong support base being built around 52,000 levels.

Thus, a crucial support base is placed in the zone 52,000 – 51,900 and only a breach below this zone shall lead to further weakness.

Until then the rangebound price action with bullish bias between 53,500 – 52,000 is likely to continue.

Comment :: 'Benchmarks struggling to justify valuations ahead of Q1'

The main indices are trading in a narrow range, struggling to justify their premium valuation ahead of the Q1 earnings season, which is forecast to be subdued.

However, the broader market is exhibiting marginal momentum, led by a shift in FIIs inflow and budget expectations.

Globally, attention is now focused on the US inflation data, which is estimated to moderate and positively influence Fed's interest rate decisions
