Technical View

The Nifty50 worked surly candle which resembles a bit of Doji kind of pattern insemination on the daily charts, indicating some indecisiveness among the bulls and the bears.

“We protract to remain cautious on the market considering of few technical developments, they are as follows: 1) the ‘Lower Top Lower Bottom’ on daily orchestration got confirmed last Friday without breaking unelevated 18,000, 2) this coincided with the violation of the key short term moving stereotype of ’20-day EMA’, which is now vicarial as a sturdy wall, and 3) increasingly importantly, if we take a glance at the monthly chart, we can see a insemination of ‘Shooting Star’ pattern, which certainly does not bode well for the bulls,” said Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives at Angel One.

He well-considered traders not to siphon aggressively bets on the long side as long as the tabulate remains unelevated 18,000 – 18,100 on a latter basis.

“On the flipside, we may see this touching-up move extending towards 17,450 first and if things worsened then the possibility of sliding towards 17,200 – 17,000 cannot be ruled out. The coming week would be quite crucial for the market as it may dictate the near term direction,” Chavan said.
