Nifty 50 formed a small negative candle on the daily chart with minor upper and lower shadows.

“Technically, this pattern signals the formation of a doji-type pattern. This is the back-to-back second such doji pattern in the last two sessions. The short-term trend of the Nifty remains positive. Though Nifty placed at the crucial overhead resistance around 22,500 levels, still there is no confirmation of any reversal pattern unfolding at the highs," said Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

He believes a decisive move above the hurdle of 22,500 - 22,600 levels could open more upside in the near term.

Here’s what to expect from Nifty 50 and Bank Nifty today:

Nifty 50 Prediction

The Nifty 50 index shifted into a breather mode on April 2 and closed the day lower by 8 points.

“The Nifty traded within a range following a flat start. The index formed back-to-back doji patterns on the daily chart, typically indicating a pause before the next move. However, sentiment remains positive, with the Nifty closing above the important moving average. Momentum also remains positive, as indicated by the RSI in bullish crossover," said Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst, LKP Securities.

Over the short term, he believes the trend is positive, with the potential to reach 22,650 - 22,700. Support is positioned at 22,350 - 22,300 on the lower end.

Bank Nifty Prediction

The Bank Nifty consolidated and ended 33 points lower at 47,545 on Tuesday.

“The Bank Nifty index maintained a narrow consolidation pattern in anticipation of the RBI policy. With downside support at 47,000 and upside resistance at 48,000, a breakout in either direction could trigger significant market moves," said Kunal Shah, Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst at LKP Securities.

Despite the consolidation, the overall sentiment remains bullish, suggesting that dips should be seen as buying opportunities, especially with immediate support around the 47,400 - 47,350 zone, Shah added.
