The key snooping is that the Nifty is still trading unelevated 20-day SMA or unelevated 18,100. We are of the view that 18,100 would be the next intraday breakout level for the day traders and whilom the same the uptrend momentum will protract up to 18,150-18,200.

On the flip side, strong support is seen near 17,900 and if it slips it, the uptrend would be vulnerable.

The recent buoyancy in the global markets has relieved the participants tween mixed domestic cues, however, it’s too early to undeniability it a trend reversal.

As the festival season is overdue us, the focus will shift when to earnings announcements. Besides, domestic macro data outcome (IIP & CPI) and global cues will be closely tracked.

The Nifty should make a decisive move whilom 18,100 to resume the trend else consolidation or profit-taking would resume.

We recommend standing with a stock-specific trading tideway and focusing on the themes and sectors that are seeing noticeable ownership interest.
