Bank Nifty has been within a large range for a few months now, this week was quite bearish and we expect this sentiment to carry forward this week too, The banking index could potentially test and challenge support levels of 34,200-34,000.
The FMCG index has broken out of a consolidation channel and has given an extremely bullish close on the last closing of the week, this has typically always been the trend, when the broad market indices struggle, FMCG comes to the rescue and becomes a safe haven for conservative investors.

The IT sector has gotten overheated at the moment, it doesn’t mean that the sector looks bearish, if anything, it will offer an opportunity to buy on dips, we expect this index to test support zones near the 32500 levels.
