This week, the Nifty 50 closed at 19,794, closing higher for the fourth week in a row gaining 0.32% over the previous week’s close. The index is now very close to its immediate resistance level of 19,850.
In the coming week, if the Nifty 50 continues to show strength, it is likely to cross the barrier of 19850 in the first two trading days of the week. On crossing this resistance level, the next level that the Nifty can cross the 20,000 level by the end of the week.
On the other hand, if it fails to cross the resistance level, we will witness a correction in the index, and it will head southwards to 19,550 levels. The probability of the Nifty continuing its upward momentum seems higher than the probability of a retracement.
Nifty50 Weekly Chart
The Banknifty index closed this week at 43,769 gaining 0.42% over the previous week. This is a positive sign as the Banknifty had corrected last week in reaction to the RBI tightening norms for consumer lending for banks as well as NBFCs.
In the coming week, the Banknifty is likely to head higher and cover the gap formed on the daily chart and touch levels of 44,300. In case of weakness the index has a strong support at 43,450 level.
At the current juncture it is difficult to assign the probability of the Banknifty heading higher or lower. However, the first two trading days will guide the movement of the index for the rest of the week.
