Index trend and stocks in action February 21, 2018
Nifty opened the session with modest gains and extended its upmove in the early part of the session, but later on, profit-booking emerged at higher levels and Nifty concluded the session near the day’s low. The price action formed a small body negative candle with an upper shadow, which indicates selling pressure at higher levels. Going ahead, the zone of 10,270-10,300 is a key support area as it is about 80% retracement of the upmove (10,007.48-11,171.55). In the coming sessions, if the index holds above the recent swing low of 10,276 on a closing basis, followed by some consolidation, it would lead to a pull-back rally. On the upside, immediate resistance is seen around the levels of 10,400-10,450. The daily RSI has a reading of 35, and on previous occasions, RSI has turned up sharply from these levels.
