On outlook for Bank Nifty today, Ashwin Ramani, Derivatives & Technical Analyst at SAMCO Securities said, "Bank Nifty consolidated between the 44,200 to 44,700 for the fourth consecutive day to end at 44,399, down 186 points. Strong call writing was observed at 44,500 & 44,400 Strikes today. A break below 44,250 can take the Index until 43,800 levels. The option activity at 44,300 Stike will provide cues about Intraday direction in Bank Nifty Wednesday (tomorrow) ahead of the weekly expiry on Thursday."

"Given the global concerns of more US rate hikes along with 16-year high US 10-year bond yield and 7-month high Dollar Index, the sentiments remain dented and thus is resulting in profit booking. In the near term, we expect this weakness to persist with stock-specific action. Investors would continue to take cues from economic data to be release globally and domestically with all eyes on RBI monetary policy due on Oct 6th, Friday," said Siddhartha Khemka of Motilal Oswal.
