What should traders do? Here’s what analysts said:
Kunal Shah, Senior Technical & Derivative analyst at LKP Securities
Nifty has formed a Doji candle on the daily chart, reflecting a state of indecision as a battle between the bulls and the bears unfolds. Downside support is apparent in the 19,000-18,900 range, with visible fresh put writing for the upcoming weekly expiry. Immediate resistance is situated at the 19,200 level, and a breakthrough at this point could trigger fresh short covering, potentially propelling the index towards 19,300-19,350.

On the derivative front, the strikes of 19150 saw the highest addition of call open interest indicating the zone to act as immediate resistance. Nifty50’s breadth closed on a strong foot as only 8 stocks closed in the green.
