Despite the fact that the benchmark index has not declined much on Monday, the market breadth remained negative. And India VIX jumped more than 6 per cent and closed above 18.05. As a result, it has resulted in a 17-week breakout. The uptick in India VIX has serious implications in the near term. Hence, we would advise the traders to keep a close eye on India VIX as sustaining above the 18-mark would give a tough time.
On the downside, the level of 17,640 is immediate support and a breach of this support would result in a fall up to the level of 17,440. On the upside, the level of 18,045 is likely to act as strong resistance in the near term.
