The major resistance for the index is positioned at 48,000, where significant call-writing activity has been observed, indicating strong resistance at this level. The overall market tone continues to be bearish, and if the selling pressure persists, the index could test its next major support level at 46,500, where the 100-day exponential moving average (EMA) is located."

Infosys and Bajaj Auto will be in the limelight as both companies declared their results on Thursday after the market close. On the global front, investors will watch out for US Existing home sales data."
