On outlook for Nifty 50 today, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The short-term trend of Nifty continues to be positive. Having moved up sharply in the last few sessions and the placement of hurdle around 20,910 levels (61.8% Fibonacci extension), there is a possibility of consolidation or minor correction from near 21,000 levels in the short term. Immediate support for Nifty today is placed at 20,800 levels."

On outlook for Bank Nifty today, Ashwin Ramani, Derivatives & Technical Analyst, SAMCO Securities said, "Bank Nifty came under intense selling pressure since the market open but later consolidated throughout the day to close at 46,835, down 178 points. The Index has formed a bearish engulfing candle on the daily chart, which is considered to be bearish reversal signal. Heavy call writing was observed at 47,000 Strike in Bank Nifty and the option activity at this strike will provide cues about Bank Nifty’s future direction."

On triggers for stock market today, Siddhartha Khemka of Motilal Oswal said, "With RBI two day meeting commencing today investor will focus on governor’s commentary and clue for rate cut. Thus, rate sensitive sectors will remain in focus. Markets saw a smart rally of ~11% since the low of October end. Despite this sharp up-move, Nifty is trading at a 12-month forward P/E ratio of 18.4x, which is at a 9% discount vs. its long-period average (LPA). Hence, we expect focus to shift towards the large-cap stocks."
