Nifty is in consolidating range of 14800-15200 since last 4-5 trading sessions. The chart pattern suggests that if Nifty breaks and sustains above 15100 then it would witness fresh buying action which could lead Nifty towards 15200-15300, however, if Nifty breaks below 14900 level it would witness selling which would lead the index towards 14800-14700 levels.

Markets are witnessing choppy trading for the past few sessions, with bulls and bears fighting it out for control.

So, if there is no major action in global markets for next two days, then expiry is likely to pan out somewhere in the range of 14950-15150: Sameet Chavan, Chief Technical Analyst, Angel Broking
