On day trading guide for Nifty Bank index; Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com said, "The banking index has relatively done better than the Nifty last week and the broader charts of Bank Nifty indicate an impulsive upside move. Thus, banking space could dictate and lead the next leg of the upside move and hence, traders should keep a close tab on momentum in heavyweights from this sector."
Ruchit Jain of 5paisa,com said that this week, 17500 levels will now be seen as the important support for NSE Nifty while a move above 17,700 could again lead to a buying interest amongst market participants and take the index towards 17,900 to 18,000. "In our view, last week’s correction is just a short term corrective phase and our markets should now resume the uptrend to mark a pre-budget rally," he concluded.
