What does Bank Nifty’s EOD Chart tell us?

As mentioned above, a closing below 36500 is not that optimistic. But, we have already concluded yesterday that the upside looked restricted, haven’t we? So, the closing shouldn’t be surprising.

Bank nifty has formed a bearish spinning top candlestick and is still trading below the 21 Day moving average.

The option chain is little in favor of bulls with restricted upside of 37000 for this week’s expiry.

Conclusion: Looking at Bank Nifty’s EOD closing, chart, RSI and global markets, the pullback rally on bank nifty looks to be over.

The upper limit for bank nifty looks clearly looks restricted near 37k. If there is a big gap down opening, the shorts on the put side may run for cover, which may pull the bank nifty even more lower. 35400-500 and 35000 remain crucial support for the April month expiry. If bank nifty breaks 35k and sustains below it, we may witness bloodbath.

Overall bias is negative for tomorrow i.e 27 April 2022.
