Here’s a rundown of today’s expected market movements…
The market faced selling pressure persistently at higher levels throughout the day, causing a downturn across most indices, barring India’s volatility index, which surged by 10%. The daily chart manifested a long bearish candle, indicating a continuation of weak sentiment in the near future.
For short-term traders, critical support zones are identified at 19,400/65,200 and 19,250/65,000, while pivotal resistance zones stand at 19,600 and 19,800/65,800-66,200.
Notably, the 19,250 level finds support from the 100-day SMA. The current market structure suggests volatility might persist over the next few trading sessions, making a strategy of buying on dips and selling on upswings prudent for short-term traders.
It is recommended to strategize trades based on these given levels.

Shifting focus to Bank Nifty, a decisive resistance level is noted at 44,750.
As long as it remains below this level, weak sentiment is expected to persist, possibly leading to a slip to 44,100-43,800 levels.
Conversely, a potential uptrend might unfold only post breaching the 44,750 mark, driving the index towards 45,000-45,200. In the Nifty IT index, a substantial drop saw it reaching 31,800 levels, with the next support identified at 31,400, corresponding to the 50-day SMA.
