Nifty abandoned the pullback rally in a very short span and resumed its downward journey with a lower high, lower low formation. Nifty’s last two days’ rally panned out to be a mere false relief rebound as most of Nifty gains evaporated and most importantly, the benchmark ended at its lowest point of the day.
On June 22, the benchmark index witnessed a gap down opening of almost 100 points and formed a lower high, lower low pattern which continued negative bias on the intraday chart. Index closed below 15,500 levels with a loss of almost one and half percent on the daily chart.
After July 2020, this is the first time when prices are trading below 200–week exponential moving averages and are sustaining below the same on the weekly scale. On the indicator front, momentum oscillator RSI (14) is forming lower bottom since October 2021 and continuing to follow the same. Currently, RSI is settled below 40-levels on the daily as well as weekly time frame with bearish crossover.
The support for the Nifty is placed near 15,200-levels and if prices close below the same then previous year’s low will be tested which is placed near 14,800 levels. On the higher side, the immediate resistance for the index is placed at 15,750 levels and above those 15,900 levels.
