TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
he Nifty50 settled lower on Wednesday, but defended its supports at 10,600 and 10,550 well to settle with marginal losses. The index formed a small bullish candle on the daily chart, even as it continued to form lower highs and lows for the second session. The said supports stayed intact as the Nifty50 headed for F&O expiry on Thursday. For any upside, the initial hurdle in the 10,650-80 range needs to be broken decisively.
