Tech View: Nifty forms high wave type candle. What traders should do on Thursday

Nifty on Wednesday ended 17 points lower to form a high wave type candle on the daily chart. The index largely traded sideways and failed to generate any significant directional breakout.

The short-term trend of Nifty continues to be up. Further consolidation or minor dip in the market is expected before showing further upmove. A sustainable move above the immediate resistance of 22,300 levels is likely to open the doors for the higher target of 22,600 levels in the near term. Immediate support is at 22,070 level, said Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

An analysis of Nifty put options reveals a concentration of Open Interest (OI) at the 22,000 level, implying potential support at this level. On the call side, significant OI concentrations are observed at 22,500 and 22,600 levels, nearing all-time highs.

What should traders do? Here’s what analysts said:

Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst, LKP Securities

Bulls struggled to push Nifty above the 22,250 mark on a closing basis. Sentiment remains subdued as long as it stays below 22,250. A decisive move beyond this level could potentially propel Nifty towards 22,600 and beyond. Conversely, a failure to sustain above 22,200 might invite selling pressure in the market.

Osho Krishan, Angel One

The broader view remains intact with the bullish biases, but it seems really challenging to hold on to higher grounds with conviction. Hence, one is required to have a pragmatic approach of the ‘Buy on dips’ and ‘Sell on the Rise’ until we see a decisive participation of the bulls in carrying momentum. Simultaneously, the resilience of 20 DEMA is expected to act as a daunting task for the bulls in the near period, and an authoritative breach could only dictate the next leg of rally in the index. On the lower end of the spectrum, the support lies around 22,150-22,100, which is expected to cushion any intraday blips, followed by the sacrosanct support at 22,000 mark.

Om Mehra, SAMCO Securities

Nifty is forming an inverted Head and Shoulder pattern on the hourly chart, with the neckline remaining around 22,320; if crossed, expect a potential rally towards the 22,450-22,500 range. On the downside, immediate support is seen at the 22,080 level. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) continues to hover below the 50 mark, signalling short-term weakness in the market. Despite this, the index is likely to maintain its range-bound movement between 22,050 and 22,350 in the near term.
