“The Nifty continued with positive momentum and closed with gains for the ninth consecutive trading session. On the charts, we can observe that the Nifty witnessed an intraday dip however the zone of 17,750 – 17,720 where support in the form of the 20-hour moving average was placed absorbed the selling pressure and restricted further slide,” Jatin Gedia, Technical Research Analyst, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas said.
“On a weekly basis, the Nifty has managed to close above the 20-week moving average (17,789) which is a Bullish sign. The weekly momentum indicator has triggered a fresh positive crossover which is a buy signal. On a higher time frame, chart structure has turned in favour of the bulls,” Gedia said.
“Considering the sharp run-up in the previous nine trading sessions, a consolidation is highly probable and it should be considered as a buying opportunity. In terms of levels, 17,860 – 17,900 is the immediate hurdle one while 17,730 – 17,700 shall act as crucial support from a short-term perspective. On the upside we expect the Nifty to target levels of 18,000,” the Sharekhan analyst said.
