SGX Nifty is trading some -40 points lower in early trade and global cues are also negative. These factors indicate a gap down opening for Indian stock markets.
On technical charts, that would mean Bank Nifty and Nifty will fall below their 100-Day Moving average, which has been providing strong support to these indexes in last three session.
For Nifty and Bank Nifty, now their 200-Day Moving Average becomes important and strong support which will come near 3rd support of today’s intraday pivot levels.
