Banks Lead The Nifty Index As It Crosses 16,700
The Nifty index opened at a Gap up of 56 points at 16, 661.25, led by the Financial (1.55%), Nifty Bank (1.49%), and Private Bank (1.43%) sectors. Moreover, during the trading session, it significantly increased in value. The Index was up 0.69% and closed at 16,719.45 (up by 114.20 points) on Friday, July 22, 2022.
With this bullish rally, the Nifty index broke its resistance level that was earlier set at 16,654. This was the third time in the week when this Indian stock market index broke the set resistance level, which enables a good upperside potential to it. The entire week was ‘green’ for the index and rightly proves that the upside conclusion that we provided earlier was indeed true. Here is a market roundup analysis provided for better understanding.
