Will Support Hold? Nifty Faces Downward Pressure

Will Support Hold? Nifty Faces Downward Pressure

Nifty Technical View:

The Nifty index is showing a small pause in its downward movement on daily charts, indicated by a specific candlestick pattern. It’s currently at a critical support level around 21,900. While there could be a temporary bounce upward, there’s no clear sign yet of a strong reversal to higher levels. If the support around 21,900 holds, we might see a small upward move, but if it breaks, the index could decline further to around 22,700-22,600 levels in the short term. Monitoring these support and resistance levels is key to understanding the market’s next moves. Immediate resistance is at 22,300 levels.

Nifty: – Resistance     22,070, 22,160 and 22,230 levels.

Index Future levels

Bank Nifty Future Buy near 47,300, the index is expected to see up side levels of 47,600 and 47,900, and level 47,000 will act as a stop loss.

Indian Vix

The high volatility is favouring the bears over the bulls in the market. The India VIX, which measures fear or volatility, has surged by 81% over the last 12 consecutive sessions, reaching a level of 18.47. This is the highest closing level since October 13, indicating a significant increase in market uncertainty and nervousness among investors.


The Nifty Put-Call ratio (PCR) rose slightly to 0.91 on May 10, up from the previous session’s level of 0.90. This ratio is a gauge of market sentiment: when it’s above 0.7 or exceeds 1, it suggests that traders are selling more Put options than Call options, signalling a strengthening bullish sentiment. Conversely, if the ratio drops below 0.7 or moves toward 0.5, it indicates that selling in Call options is higher than in Put options, reflecting a bearish mood in the market.
