Technical View

The Nifty worked a surly candle on daily scale and has been forming lower highs – lower lows from the last two sessions.

The tabulate has to navigate and hold whilom 17,950 levels for an up move towards 18,100-18,150 zones. While on the downside, tabulate has a major support at 17,777 and 17,600 levels, said Chandan Taparia, Vice President | Analyst-Derivatives at Motilal Oswal Financial Services.

Outlook for November 12

Manish Hathiramani, proprietary tabulate trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments:

The Nifty respected the 17,800 support and ended the session whilom it. We are currently virtually the lower end of the range which is 17,700. The upper end is 18,100.

We need to see if we either unravel 17,700 or tropical whilom 18,100. One of the two will indulge the tabulate to unravel out or unravel lanugo from this range-bound movement. Until then it is weightier to sit on the sidelines and wait for a directional move.

Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Reviewer at LKP Securities:

The tabulate showed selling pressure for the third subsequent session and sealed a day at 17,874 with a loss of nearly one percent. It has shown some pullback without hitting a good demand zone of 17,800 in last hour which hints 17,800 will be first good support for the coming session, followed by 17,700 zone.

That apart, any dip near the said levels will be a ownership opportunity on the positional understructure with a stop out level unelevated 17,600 zone.

The firsthand hurdle is coming near 17,940-18,050 zone and whilom the said levels, one can expect a fresh breakouts.

Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Head of Technical Research, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas:

The level of 17,800 indeed make-believe as a crucial support and will protract to provide support going ahead.

As long as the tabulate trades whilom 17,800, it can once then take a leap towards 18,000-18,100. The daily orchestration shows that the Nifty is witnessing oscillations between the key daily moving averages & the short term consolidation is expected to protract further.
