Good Morning Everyone, Nifty opened with a gap up yesterday, but could not sustain the levels and fell down by end of the day.
Today being the monthly expiry, will add to the volatility of the existing geopolitical trauma.
Nifty is expected to open a gap down today, which might lead to a sudden panic in the market, and 16800 will be very important to watch, which if broken can lead to a major breakdown in Nifty. However, chances are low for the same as the Nifty is already in the oversold zone.
