Volatility to the core! Where is Nifty headed to?

Good Morning Everyone, What a volatile day just ahead of the weekly expiry today. Nifty went on a powerful uprise but could not sustain the levels and went to negative territory in the last 1 hour, as tension in Russia - Ukraine grows higher. This will continue for a few days until things are clear on the global front.

However the good this is that Nifty still holds well above 17000, which if continued, can be a better sign. Any breach below 16800 can prove a weakness in the market.
