Bank Nifty October Futures (43,816)

Bank Nifty index has been falling since Tuesday. The index has declined below 43,750—the lower end of its 43,750-44,750 range. The advance/decline ratio at 1:11 indicates weakness in the index. IndusInd Bank, up 2.6 per cent, is the sole outperformer in the index.


The break below 43,750 is a negative. The broad 43,800-43,900 region will now act as a strong resistance zone for the Nifty Bank index. The outlook is bearish to see a fall to 43,200-43,000 in the coming sessions.

We now suggest traders to reverse the positions and take fresh shorts at current levels. Accumulate short positions on a rise at 43,960. Keep the stop-loss at 44,080. Trail the stop-loss down to 43,780 as soon as the contract falls to 43,710. Move the stop-loss further down to 43,705 when the contract touches 43,660 on the downside. Exit the short positions at 43,520.
