While the S&P BSE Sensex ended at 61,981.79, up 18.11 points or 0.03%, the broader Nifty50 settled at 18,348, higher by 33.60 points or 0.18%. In the 50-stock Nifty, 27 advanced while 23 declined. Banking gauge Nifty Bank was up by 69.35 points or 0.16% and closed at 43,954.45.

Nifty is forming a doji candle, which signals indecision, Ashwin Ramani, Derivatives & Technical Analyst, SAMCO Securities said. Call writers were seen exiting from the 18,300, 18,200 and 18,100 strikes while put writers aggressively built positions at 18,400 and 18,500 strikes, indicating support getting stronger at lower levels, he said.

“The Relative Strength Index (RSI), which is a momentum indicator, is forming lower highs on the daily chart and hence traders are advised to exercise caution. Nifty was on course to close above the 18,350 level, which was acting as a stiff resistance for the benchmark index for the last two weeks. The next support for the Nifty is placed around 18,200 levels. Nifty is unlikely to gain momentum until it manages to give a strong close above 18,400,” Ramani said.

Meanwhile, Bank Nifty failed to surpass the crucial hurdle of 44,000 on closing basis, which is also the level where the maximum call and put open interest (OI) for the index is placed, the Samco Securities expert said. The lower-end support remains at the 43,500 level while 44,000 will continue to act as resistance for Bank Nifty, he said further.
