What should traders do? Here’s what analysts said:
Jatin Gedia, Sharekhan
On the daily charts, we can observe that for the last three trading sessions, Nifty is trading within a range of 19875 – 19627. On the downside, Nifty is approaching the crucial support zone of 19650 – 19600 where multiple support parameters in the form of the 40-hour moving average and the lower end of the rising channel are placed. We expect Nifty to hold on to this support. The hourly momentum indicator has a negative crossover and has reached the equilibrium line indicating that the correction has matured and can start a new cycle on the upside. In terms of levels, 19610 – 19650 is the crucial support zone while 19900 – 19930 is the immediate resistance zone.
Rupak De, LKP Securities
Nifty is currently trading within a broad consolidation phase, forming an inside bar candle pattern, with support observed at 19,650 and resistance at 19,800. For a decisive trending move, the index needs to break out of this range with significant volumes on either side. Despite the consolidation, the broader picture remains bullish, with major support identified in the 19,550-19,500 zone. A break above 19,850 is anticipated to open up room for the index to reach all-time high levels.
