For a decisive breakout to occur, experts say the Nifty has to close above 10,930. On the downside, 10,600 is a crucial support, a breach of which could extend the selling pressure…
The Nifty, which started on a flat note on Friday, gained momentum and reclaimed its crucial resistance level of 10,800, but last hour selling saw it close at 10,772.
The index formed a ‘Shooting Star’ kind of pattern on the daily charts and a ‘hammer’ kind of pattern on the weekly scale.
A ‘Shooting Star’ pattern is formed when the index comes under selling pressure as traders start booking profits at higher levels. It is usually formed in an uptrend and is treated as a reversal pattern, but it would require confirmation before we can conclude that the trend will reverse in the near future.
The Nifty took support at its 13-day exponential moving average (EMA) and bounced back to close at 10,772 levels. It hit an intraday low of 10,735 and an intraday high of 10,816.35.
Investors are advised to remain cautious till the time a clear trend emerges. For a decisive breakout to happen, the index has to close above 10,930. On the downside, 10,600 is crucial support, a breach of which could extend the selling pressure.
“The Nifty registered a Shooting Star kind of formation as once again it witnessed mild profit-booking from the day’s high of 10,816. It failed to negotiate the resistance point of the down sloping trend line, which is in progress from the highs of 11,171 with multiple touch points…
“Hence, with the passage of time, it becomes very critical for the bulls to register a breakout above the said trend line to usher in a bigger upswing. Unless that happens, the threat of moving towards the lower end of the trading range around 10,600 still looms large,” he stated.
However, technical experts said the price behaviour on the weekly charts throughout the current consolidation phase of around 8 weeks suggests that intra-week dips are getting bought into as happened on multiple occasions in this consolidation zone of 10,900–10,550 levels.
Mohammad added that even from an Elliot Wave perspective, if a contracting triangle is in progress from the highs of 10,930, the market should be under mild pressure for a couple of trading sessions as it culminates the last leg (Wave E) of this corrective structure and should register a higher bottom above 10,560 levels, which should ultimately pave the way for a big breakout.
India VIX fell down 1.11 percent to 12.45. It has been falling down for the last four trading sessions. Lower volatility indicates limited downside in the market till it remains below 13.50 zones.
