True to that, Bank Nifty fell from its resistance levels in closing hours and dragged broader stock markets down  along with.

On technical chart, at least Bank Nifty is signaling a trend reversals. Its RSI is turning down from overbought region and it has failed to break out of its technical resistance .

Nifty is also showing overbought conditions but this index is still trading above its all major Moving Averages which is a supportive indication.

Bank Nifty’s weekly chart also show a trend reversal from technical resistance levels but Nifty is still not showing any negative signal on its weekly charts, except for lower volumes.

That means Indian stock markets could see a mixed trend which will remain within this week’s high and low levels.

A range bound trend is usually trapped between support and resistance levels. For Nifty, the current trading range is between 10,600 – 10,425.

Nifty’s intraday pivot mark will be at 10,543. Above this, resistance levels are expected near 10,577-10,627- 10,661 and support levels will be near 10,492- 10,458-10,408.
