Nifty traded within a narrow range throughout the week and concluded the 4th consecutive week with losses. It began the week on a muted note but wrapped up the week at its lower levels. On the sectoral front, Nifty Media and PSU Bank saw significant gains, while Nifty Metal experienced a major decline.
Currently, the market is under pressure as the number of distribution days has reached 5. Thursday marked a volume distribution day but on Friday the volumes were lower than last trading day so that wont be considered as volume distribution day. The market could enter a downtrend if the count of volume distribution days increases to 7-8. On the contrary, the market is currently trading near its support zone at 19200. We anticipate a potential market rebound from this level.
The immediate support from here is 19200, and following that, 18900 will be considered a strong support level. 19800 will act as a resistance.

For the upcoming week, the Bank Nifty index is expected to have a support level of 43400 and on the flip side, 45400 to act as a resistance.
