On the outlook for the Nifty 50 index, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The short-term trend of the Nifty 50 index remains positive with range-bound action. A decisive break below the support of 21900-21850 is likely to drag the Nifty down to 21500 levels in a quick period. Any upside bounce from here could encounter a strong hurdle around 22200 levels."

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Om Mehra, Technical Analyst at SAMCO Securities said, "The Bank Nifty settled at 46,575.90 with a marginal decline. Bank Nifty tested the 200-day moving average (DMA) support but there was a good recovery in private banks from lower levels while PSU banking stocks continued to underperform. The immediate support for Bank Nifty remains at 46,000 while the resistance is placed at 47,050 followed by 47,250 levels."

On triggers for the Indian stock market today, Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal said, 'This week, the market will focus on major central bank meetings with the Bank of Japan scheduled to announce its outcome on Tuesday. Japan’s GDP rose to 0.1% in Q4CY23, vs -0.1% in Q3CY23, which raised speculation that the Bank is likely to discontinue its ultra-loose monetary policy. These apart investors would also track economic data like European CPI data which will be released late today. Overall, we expect the markets to consolidate over the next few days while the broader market may continue to remain subdued."
