Targets and Downfall
As we discussed earlier, if the Bank Nifty starts trading below the level of 39925, our first target is 39180, our second target is 38620, and our last target is 38380. We have achieved the first and second targets. The target of 38620 is due to the closing of the candle on 26th September 2022, after which the Bank Nifty reversed from this level and reached 44150.

Trade Setup for Monday
Based on the analysis of Bank Nifty, here is a trade setup for Monday, March 21, 2023:
- If the market opens in the range of 39,686 to 39,752 and spends some time there and then breaks the level of 39,752 and closes the candle above this level, then our targets are 39,846, 39,940, and 40,178. If the market opens in this range and without spending time, it breaks the level of 39,752, then I am not interested in buying.
- If the market opens with a gap down in the range of 39,270 to 39,400, then we have to wait for Bank Nifty to spend some time in this range and then make a breakout. If it does, I am interested in buying, and my target is 39,686. If it breaks down, then I am not interested in shorting.
- If Bank Nifty opens with a large gap up or gap down, we have to follow the price action and wait patiently for our trade setup. No hurry trade.
