The week that went by saw the Tabulate oscillating in a 561.40 points range. While the NIFTY stayed whilom key levels on the daily charts, it went past important levels on the weekly charts. The headline tabulate finally ended with a net proceeds of 458.65 points ( 2.64%) on a weekly basis.
Over the past several days, the strikes of 18000 protract to see the maximum unifying of the Call OI. This level will protract to act as resistance unless taken out convincingly. On the other hand, the highest PUT OI stands at 17500; this defines the likely trading range over the coming week. From a technical perspective, it is important to note that the NIFTY has moved past and crossed whilom the 20-Week MA which presently stands at 17553. There are chances that the markets consolidate in unstipulated with an inherently bullish undertone. Volatility increased, INDIAVIX climbed by 8.51% to 17.60.

The weekly RSI is 59.96; it stays neutral and does not show any divergence versus the price. The weekly MACD is bullish and stays whilom the signal line. A strong white candle emerged. This showed the directional consensus of the market participants throughout the week.
The pattern wringer of the weekly charts shows that pursuit a insemination of a candle with a long lower shadow, the NIFTY found a wiring for itself as it secure a crucial 16650-16700 zone. In the process, the Tabulate moreover took support at the lower Bollinger band; without this, a strong technical followed that took the markets higher.
As we throne into the new week, there are higher chances that the markets consolidate within a wholesale but specified range. Any runway up move is unlikely unless the NIFTY moves past the 18000 levels convincingly. On the other hand, plane downsides are likely to remain ranged and limited. Some consolidation, if at all it happens, should not come as a surprise as it would make the recent 1500-point technical pullback healthier and increasingly sustainable.
