Good Morning, Everyone, Nifty opened with a big gap up yesterday at 17374 but could not sustain the levels and went on to fall till it took support at 17200 and finally closed at 17248. IT was a pretty easy expiry with all our Gold members making a profit yet again in the market.
Nasdaq again fell yesterday, and it was bearish sentiment across the global markets yesterday.
Being the last trading of the week, we might see lesser excitement in the Nifty today. However, 17200 will be a level to watch, which if broken down can lead to a bigger fall to 17000.
On the higher side, 17400 remains the resistance followed by 17600.

On the daily time frame, Nifty has formed a bearish candle. However, our main watch will be on the levels discussed earlier.
It was broad-based selling in all indices, however Nifty 50 was the only index to close in green mainly supported by Infosys, Wipro, Reliance, and Bajaj Finance.
Every sector except IT closed in the red. IT was majorly supported by Infosys and Wipro.
Bajaj Finance saw some short-covering rally yesterday after the fall in previous days. Otherwise, Infosys, Wipro, and Reliance were among the top gainers.
Hindalco, Cipla, Sun Pharma, and ICICI Bank were among the top losers of the day.
Tech stocks pulled Wall Street lower Thursday as investors considered moves by other global central banks such as the Bank of England that became the first major bank to raise interest rates. The tech-heavy Nasdaq fell 2.5 percent. The Dow Jones and the S&P 500 fell nearly 0.1 and 1 percent, respectively.
Asian shares were mixed this morning following overnight losses on Wall Street. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan declined 1.8 percent. Japan's Nikkei index slipped over 0.5 percent. Chinese blue chips were down 0.4 percent. Hong Kong’s HSI rose half a percent. South Korea’s Kospi was up 0.11 percent. Elsewhere, Australian shares rose over half a percent.
Trends on the SGX Nifty indicate a flat to a positive start to the market today. However, 17200 needs to be watched.
