Last week, Bank Nifty displayed weaker performance compared to Nifty, closing with a 0.16% loss.

It may be prudent to closely monitor PSU Banks as they are currently trading in proximity to key support levels, indicating the potential for a rebound.

On the other hand, major private banks are also underperforming but are positioned near support areas. Observing the performance of these private banks will be of significant importance, as their actions could influence the direction of the overall market trend.

Bank Nifty is likely to find support at 43,600 points and may face resistance at 46,300 points.
