Nifty (weekly close approx. 9665.8):
Last week’s technical: After taking support from 50 day moving average the previous week. Nifty direction was mostly up during last week while volume was low. The market steadily drifted towards previous high of 9709 with low volume and ADX index losing momentum.
On Monday market opened gap up and started selling off. But after first hour of trade the Nifty reversed its trend and moved steadily upwards during the week, with prices taking support near hourly mid-Bollinger band. Someone could take long position in Nifty futures on pull back on Monday, targeting daily Mid Bollinger line situated at approx. 9605 (for spot Nifty) as the down trending trend line was broken. Then prices started trading over daily Mid Bollinger. A trader could also have taken long position in Nifty futures on Wednesday with the break of symmetrical triangle in spot Nifty chart and he could have made approx. 40 – 50 points in the up move. Overall, it was a low volume consolidation week with upward bias.
Next week’s technical possibilities: The daily ADX is indicating loss of momentum and also daily mid Bollinger line (20 day sma) has turned horizontal. Also the width of daily Bollinger band has contracted. Hence there is a possibility that market may remain range-bound and consolidate in the range going forward, unless there is a breakout or break-down on either sides. There are good amount of put build-up seen at 9600, 9500 and 9400 strikes. Hence the down-side looks limited with 34 day and 50 day moving averages remaining at approx. 9591 and approx. 9524 respectively. If on the upside there is a decisive breakout above 9714, i.e. upper Bollinger line, market may scale new highs. The 9700 and the 9800 calls have approx. 4 million open interest.
