Nifty technical analysis: Ahead of Market: 10 things that will decide D-Street action on Friday


NEW DELHI: Ahead of the release of the crucial US inflation data, benchmark indices took a beating for the second straight day, with Nifty still holding on to 18,000 levels.

Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at

, said, “The benchmark Nifty had started lower and slipped below 18,000 briefly. However, bulls have managed to hold the 18,000 mark on a closing basis. The trend may remain sideways as long as it remains above 18,000. On the higher end, 18,300 will continue to act as crucial resistance.”

Kunal Shah, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities, said, “The bears were on the controlling side in the index throughout the day, however, the bull came in the last hour and managed to close above the crucial support zone of 41,500-41,400. To continue the strong momentum on the upside, the bulls must close the index above 42,000 where the highest open interest is built up on the call side.”

That said, here’s a look at what some key indicators are suggesting for Friday’s action:

US market

US stocks surged, the dollar slid and Treasury yields dropped as cooler-than-expected inflation data suggested the Federal Reserve’s barrage of interest rate hikes are beginning to have their intended effect.

All three major US stock indexes rebounded sharply on the heels of Wednesday’s sell-off, and the benchmark Treasury yield touched its lowest level in weeks and the greenback plunged.

The consumer price index (CPI) showed the prices urban US consumers pay for a basket of items cooled down in October, a welcome indication that the buckets of cold water the Federal Reserve has been dumping on the economy with its hawkish monetary policy are at last being felt. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 780.67 points, or 2.4%, to 33,294.61, the S&P 500 gained 142.89 points, or 3.81%, to 3,891.46 and the Nasdaq Composite added 528.83 points, or 5.11%, to 10,882.01.

European shares

European shares reversed course to touch near two-month highs on Thursday as US consumer prices increased less than expected, bolstering hopes of less aggressive interest rate hikes from the Federal Reserve going ahead.

The pan-European STOXX 600 jumped 2.1%, on track for its biggest percentage gain in five weeks, while rate-sensitive sectors such as technology and real-estate surged more than 4% each. The Euro STOXX volatility index slipped to a 12-week low of 21.67 points.

The STOXX 600 index is now eying its fourth straight week of gains, also supported by a better-than-expected earnings season.

Tech View: Bearish candle

Nifty has formed a bearish candle with a gap but has managed to close above 18,000 level. Broad based indices Nifty 500 indicates slight gloomy over bulls as 127 stocks advanced while 373 declined.

There is negative crossover in RSI suggesting short term weakness. Overall, until Nifty sustains above 18100 and Bank nifty sustains above 41800, there is suggested caution as there is quite uncertainty regarding the trend.
