Throughout the week, the key benchmark indices, Nifty and Sensex, maintained a flat trajectory, marking the fourth consecutive week of little movement. At the close of trading, the Sensex recorded a marginal uptick of 147.99 points or 0.20 percent, reaching 73,878.15, while the Nifty edged up by 55 points or 0.25 percent to settle at 22,475.80.

The sector-wise performance showcased predominantly positive trends, with notable gains observed in PSU Banks, Metals, and Pharma sectors. Conversely, the IT and Media sectors experienced selling pressure over the week.

In Nifty, the immediate resistance is identified within the 22,600-22,700 range, characterized by notable call writing activity in the options market. Conversely, immediate support is observed at the 22,300 mark, with a breach below potentially amplifying downward momentum. Technically, the Nifty 50 has demonstrated resilience around the 22,300 level, suggesting a potential upward trajectory towards the 22,700-22,800 levels following the ongoing consolidation phase, provided the index maintains closure above this level. However, a break below 22,300 could lead to a downward movement towards the 22,000 level.
The Bank Nifty has recently slipped beneath the crucial 49,000 level and breached an upward sloping resistance trendline, which previously provided support over the last two sessions. This decline amounted to 308 points, bringing the index to 48,924. However, it managed to hold above the 10-day EMA at 48,683, serving as immediate support. Subsequently, the 21-day EMA at 48,270 is another level to watch, potentially offering support if tested. On the upside, immediate resistance is expected within the range of 49,200 to 49,300. Key support levels are positioned at 48,400 to 48,300, crucial areas to monitor for potential shifts in market sentiment
