Bank Nifty continue to nosedive and crashed 246 points and closed at 31,824 levels.
Speaking on the current market scenario Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical equity analyst said, "The market is overall bullish. Nifty is facing strong resistance in between 12,300 to 12,400. If the 50-stocks index sustains above 12,300 levels, then we can expect it to touch 12,400 in one to two trade sessions."
