Despite some banking sector sell-offs, Nifty 50 wrapped up the week with modest gains. Market sentiment on Dalal Street is anticipated to remain positive as long as Nifty 50 holds above the crucial support level of 19,500, with put writers expected to provide support at this level. Resistance levels are seen around 19,750-19,800. Given this outlook, a strategy of buying on dips is considered favorable as long as the index remains above 19,500.
On the other hand, the Bank Nifty faced challenges in regaining ground above the ascending trendline on the daily chart, signaling a bearish trend in the banking sector. Moreover, the index has consistently remained below important moving averages, reinforcing this bearish trend. Looking ahead, a significant breakthrough above 44,550 could potentially drive the index towards 45,000 and beyond, while support is situated at 44,200.
