Indian stock market: Nifty witnessed two days of recovery following a doji formation on the daily chart, indicating a bullish reversal. Moreover, the Nifty has reclaimed the critical 55-day exponential moving average. However, Nifty needs to cross over 22,100 to witness a clear rally towards the all-time high of 22,525. On the lower end, 22,950 might remain a strong support for the index. Below this level, the index might enter a consolidation phase.

Bank Nifty

Meanwhile, the BankNifty experienced strong buying activity from lower levels, yet faced challenges in surpassing the resistance at 47,000. Immediate support is identified at 46,600-46,500. As long as the index maintains above this level, the outlook remains bullish. A breakthrough above 47,000 is expected to initiate sharp short-covering rallies towards the 48,000 level.
