Kunal Shah, Senior Technical Analyst at

Nifty Bank witnessed selling pressure at higher levels and remains in a sell-on-rise mode as long as it stays below the level of 42,000. The index immediate downside support stands at 40,500 and a breach below this will open gates for further downside toward 39,000 level. The index is trading in a tight range between 40,000-42,000 and a break on either side will give a directional move to the index.
