NIFTY Index Chart Analysis
NIFTY Index Chart Analysis
11061 to act as near term support for Nifty
Technically, Nifty closed below the long-term average of 200 DMA and added two distribution days last week. Before breaching the 200 DMA, it first breached the 100 DMA on Tuesday. Currently, it has closed below the short-term moving average of 20 DMA but just above the 50 DMA. Interestingly, the Nifty retraced more than 50 per cent of the historical surge of 1,000 points. It fell 568 points from the high of 11,695 made on October 23. It also closed below the swing highs of August 9 and 27. Importantly, it tested the consolidation breakout level. At the same time, Nifty fell below this breakout level or the 11,140-181 zone and entered into a consolidation zone again. This means that the euphoria of the corporate tax cut has faded out.
The leading sectoral index, Nifty Bank, actually corrected more than 78 per cent of 4,074 points move in two days. It also closed below the all short and long moving averages. The PSU Bank index is actually making a new 52-week low closing. The PVT Bank index has given up 80 per cent of the gains. The small-cap index has given up 100 per cent of the gains. And there are many stocks trading below the lows of September 20. With this kind of retracemens, there are very bleak chances of a bullish reversal from here. Any bounce above the 11,470-570 zone can be treated as a bullish reversal.
As discussed in the last column, the failure break above the confluence of channels is not a good sign for the market. Even the indicators are suggesting more weakness in the market in the near future. The leading indicator RSI once again reached below the 50 zone. The MACD line is about to cross under the signal line and the histogram is near zero. The Stochastic oscillator also indicates a further downward move. Now the big question is whether the 50 DMA level of 11,088 and
61.8 retracement of the level of the recent upsurge at 11,061 will hold or not. In any case, if Nifty falls below the 11,060 level, the next level support is placed at 10,890. Below this, all the way it will test the prior lows.
On the upside, the resistances are placed at 11,250, 11,335, 11,400 and 11,470. Only by moving above these levels will the bulls get confidence to move upside. Watch these levels for the next few days. The sharp pullbacks can only improve the bullish sentiment. The continuous negative closing days are now six. As history suggests, most of the downswings ended on the 7th or 8th day. Let’s wait and watch whether history will be repeated or not. Watch the Nifty movements. This week’s close is important as three Nifty stocks, namely, TCS, Infosys and Indusind Bank are declaring their Q2 financial results. The RBI monetary policy did not cheer the market once again. In fact, all the monetary policy decisions have witnessed market sell-offs.
The earnings season is set to begin this week. We need to watch closely how many corporates benefit from the recent corporate tax cut. The measure of impact is very important for this season. It is also important to watch the topline growth to measure the slowdown effect and the bottomline to check if there is any improvement with the corporate tax cut. The financial performance of the Nifty companies is very crucial for the market movement. All the other economic data points are not encouraging. At least the financial results may turn out to be a sentiment-booster in the market. Next week onwards, stock-specific market action will rule the market.
