Nifty is currently in an attempt of showing an upside breakout of the down sloping trend line around 19500 levels. A decisive move above 19600 levels is expected to pull Nifty towards the next upside of around 19800-19900 levels in the near term. Immediate support is at 19430 levels, Shetti said.
The daily momentum indicator has a positive crossover, which is a buy signal.
What should traders do? Here’s what analysts said:
Rupak De, LKP Securities
Nifty continues to stay in the bullish territory as the index has maintained its position above the channel breakout level. The trend is expected to stay positive as long as it remains above 19,525. On the upside, the index could potentially extend its gains towards 19,750. Conversely, if it falls below 19,400, we may witness a period of consolidation.
Jatin Gedia, Sharekhan
On the daily charts, we can observe that the Nifty is stretching on the upside. The intraday dip was bought into, which indicates buying interest at supports and also suggests bullishness. We believe that the Nifty is in the process of retracing the fall it has witnessed from 19992 – 19223 and hence the pullback is likely to last over the next few trading sessions. On the upside, we expect the Nifty to target levels of 19650. In terms of levels, Crucial support zone is placed at 19420 – 19360 and immediate hurdle is placed at 19650 – 19700.Ajit Mishra, SVP – Technical Research, Religare Broking
Indications are favorable for further rebound as Nifty has surpassed a trend line resistance while holding the support zone of short-term average i.e. 20 EMA. However, a hurdle of around 19,650 may cap the upside and prompt some profit taking too. Amid all, we reiterate our view to focus on stock selection and preferring auto, IT and metal for long trades.
