The Nifty may find strong support around 16,400 levels, while on the upside 16,750 may act as an immediate hurdle. The Bank Nifty has support at 34,800 levels on the other hand, while the resistance is at 36,000 levels. The Indian market is likely to open lower today as the SGX Nifty fell 25 points to 16,534.
