Here’s a rundown of today’s expected market movements…
From a technical standpoint, the indices faced increased selling pressure right from the market opening, breaking the critical threshold of 20,000/67,100.
The day's closure below the levels of 19,910 further exacerbated the negative sentiment.
In light of this, our strategy advocates a cautious approach. While the intraday market structure appears weak, temporary oversold conditions might pave the way for range-bound activity in the near term.
For those on the bullish front, the levels of 20,000-20,030/67,100-67,300 present an immediate resistance zone. Conversely, the range of 19,850-19,750/66,700-66,300 emerges as a crucial support zone for traders.
For day traders, a prudent strategy involves buying on dips between 19,850 and 19,750, and strategically selling on an upswing at 20,000/67,350.
