Stock market today

Speaking on the outlook for the Indian stock market today, Ganesh Dongre said, "On the Nifty front, nifty closed at the support level of 22300–22400 zone, which may keep the movement sideways for the Nifty in the upcoming days. The next resistance for the Nifty spot will be 22800-22900. As per today's chart pattern, we have seen the gap opening and continue its bullish trend, but Nifty has seen profit booking for the rest of the day. So, indices closed in negative territory at the end of the day. So, on the Nifty front, we may see profit booking on the stock-specific level in the upcoming trading session; next Nifty support stands at the 22100-22200 level."

"On the bank nifty front, we have seen a gap-up opening today, which is a strong bullish signal, but it couldn't hold its gain and seen profit booking in the indices till the end of the day. Bank Nifty resistance stands at 49,000 and support at 48,500 level," Dongre said. In summary, the stock market today showed signs of volatility and profit booking after reaching new peaks earlier in the day.
