What should traders do? Here’s what analysts said:
Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Broking
We may see some consolidation in the market amid mixed global cues. However, the bias would remain on the positive side. Participants should utilise the phase to add quality names, especially from banking, IT and auto space. Besides, they may consider selective bets from mid and smallcaps, citing the recent participation.

Structurally, the index has been forming an extension on the upside. Thus, the zone of 18400-18360 would continue to act as a crucial support area. As long as the index stays above this zone, it can stay on the upward trajectory from a short term perspective. Subsequent targets on the upside will be 18700 and 19000.
Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, Securities
Nifty, as per the weekly chart, is in a sharp uptrend movement, and there’s no sign of any tiredness/reversal observed at the highs. Having registered a new all-time high, the next upside target to be watched for the index is at 0.786% Fibonacci extension at 18955 levels (taken from June’s bottom, Sept top and Sept higher bottom as per the weekly chart). This could be achieved in the next 1-2 weeks. Immediate support is at 18350 levels.
