Investors should exercise caution in these markets and take advantage of any drops in fundamentally sound stocks. Immediate support and resistance for Nifty are 16,000 and 16,500 respectively. Immediate support and resistance for Bank Nifty are 34000 and 35,000 respectively.”

“Technically, The Nifty has formed a Hammer Kind of candlestick pattern on a daily chart which indicates value buying from lower levels. Moreover, Nifty has taken support from the lower band of Bollinger on a Four- hourly chart which is a sign of short-term reversal in the counter. However, the momentum indicators RSI bounced from oversold zone as well as divergence has been seen on an hourly chart which indicates bounce back momentum. The Nifty may find Strong support around 16000 levels, while on the upside 16400 may act as an immediate hurdle for the Nifty crossing above the same can attract fresh buying. On the other hand, Bank nifty has support at 33800 levels while resistance at 35500 levels.”

The market turned volatile waiting for the release of April US inflation data, which is expected to cool down marginally.

The major determinant for market direction would be the pace of decline in inflation in response to the Fed measures.”
