Index trend and stocks in action June 18, 2019
The Nifty extended its southward journey for the second consecutive day on Monday and ended with loss of over one per cent below the 11,700 mark. The price action formed a significant bear candle carrying lower high-low, indicating extended sell-off. After registering a swing high of 12,000 on June 20, the index has lost over 300 points. As a result, the index has closed below the important moving averages, i.e. 20-DMA and 50-DMA, which is a short term bearish signal. Nifty has also breached the low of June 7 (11,770). If we look at the earlier retracement from the resistance, it has retraced twice by about 50-61.8 per cent. Now, the upswing from May 14 to June 3 is about 1000 points. If the history repeats, Nifty May correct up to the level of 11,600, which is 50 per cent retracement level and also the low of May 20 session. In any case, if these levels do not hold, there is a probability of filling the gap of May 20.
