NIFTY Index Chart Analysis : FOLLOW THE TREND
The domestic stock market’s winning streak has continued for the fifth straight week. The bulls are not giving any chance to the bears to dominate the market. However, the wavering moves of the bulls have been creating confusion among traders. The sector rotation and the broader market outperformance have kept the market flourishing. The Nifty has rallied almost 111 per cent since its March 2020 low. During the 15 months of this rally, the market ignored several historical patterns. Fundamentally, the high PE has become obsolete. Many bearish technical patterns have failed.
These indecisive and conflicting moves have become the order of the day. For the last three days, the Nifty has been making a new record high with indecisive candles. In the recent past, several such Doji candles failed to get bearish confirmations. As Steve Nison’s candlestick principle, the Doji candle at a lifetime high requires a close below it for a bearish implication. That has not happened until now. The price has made a new record high, but the indicator is far away from its previous high. This is clearly indicating a negative divergence. The average daily ranges are also declining. The cash volumes are declining and they are below the average.
These facts indicate that the market is overstretched. Certainly, there are no bearish signals. But then, as long as Nifty has protected the prior week’s low, be with a positive bias. The 66-day cup pattern breakout has met 50 per cent of its target. Our earlier short-term target of 15,968 has almost been met. In fact, the Nifty retraced above the 161.8 per cent (15,470) of last year’s fall in the second attempt. Earlier it made the exact top at the level in February. For the third week it is sustaining above this level. The index is moving higher since May 14 without making any lower swing.
A fall of over 100 points on June 9 created some hopes for bears. Further, a sharp intraday fall on June 14 was recouped in the second half of the trading session and the index closed near the day’s high. This clearly displays the mood of the market participants which is that buying at the dip has been a preferred theme. The much broader index, Nifty 500, is also at a new record high during this week. All the major sector indices such as Nifty IT, Pharmaceuticals, Metal and FMCG are also at a record high. But the leading sector, Bank Nifty, has been making a divergent move compared to Nifty. The last two days of price action has provided hope of a reversal in Bank Nifty.
The index heavyweight stock, Reliance Industries, has broken out of the seven-month long sideway decisively. These are positive factors for the market. However, with formation of three consecutive indecisive patterns, the index is giving a cautionary signal. On the other hand, it shows inherent strength with broader participation. In these conditions, it is wise to follow the trend rather than anticipate a reversal. So far, there are no definite reversal signs on the chart. Hence, it is better to follow the trend but with some caution. The Nifty has a limited upside of 15,986, where the short-term resistance placed. Above this level, as projected earlier, the next target is at 16,493.
But, on the downside, a move below 15,606 -15,566, which is a major support level, would give the first signal of a reversal in the market. The 20-DMA is currently placed at 15,501. These are some crucial supports for the short term. Only below these levels it may retest the cup breakout level of 15,285. For the next few days it would be tough to follow the market in a shorter timeframe or intraday. The volatile moves will be more impulsive. As the VIX and implied volatility at the lower level indicate, the option premiums are also not attractive. There is a maximum call selling seen at the 16,000 level. A low volume rally cannot be trusted blindly. Hence, follow strict trailing stop losses for all the long positions.
