Stock Market – August 18, 2023: Nifty Outlook for the Day
Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, stated that the short-term trend of Nifty remains choppy with a weak bias. There is a potential for a downside breakout of the key lower support zone, ranging from 19,300 to 19,250 levels in the short term. This could potentially lead Nifty down to other support levels at 19,100 to 19,000 levels in the near term. Any upward movement from the current levels could encounter strong resistance at 19,600 levels.
Stock Market Today: Bank Nifty Outlook for the Day
Vaishali Parekh, Vice President — Technical Research at Prabhudas Lilladher, noted that Bank Nifty has been hovering around the 43,700-44,000 zone with a cautious bias. The 43,300 level is identified as a major crucial support zone for the index. A failure to hold this support could weaken the overall trend, possibly leading to intensified profit booking. On the other hand, a decisive move above the 44,400 zone is necessary for the bias to improve, potentially paving the way for further gains.
