“While Nifty continues hovering near record highs, the broader markets have witnessed a notable correction over the last few days with a significant deterioration in the market breadth. As at the time of writing, the Nifty Midcap 100 and Smallcap 100 index are down nearly 5% and 8% from their peaks, respectively. At present, we are witnessing a stealth decline within the context of the larger bull market. Although the larger uptrend remains intact, for the shorter-term, one must be light on positions and trade cautiously, until the broader markets stabilize. For the Nifty Midcap 100 index, the region between 27000 and 26600 is the immediate support zone to watch out for. Similarly, for the Nifty Smallcap 100 index, this zone happens to be between 9800 and 9600. If the indices stabilize around these zones for a few days, a recovery can be expected in the following sessions. If not, we could see an additional 5-6% correction in the days ahead,” said Abhishek Chinchalkar, CMT Charterholder and Head of Education, FYERS.

In the last week, the benchmark index Nifty/ Sensex first time hit the 16000/ 53500 mark and also registered fresh all-time highs of 16349.45 and 54633.58, respectively. Technically, on weekly charts, the Nifty/ Sensex has formed a strong breakout formation, which indicates a further uptrend from current levels. Post breakout the Nifty is consolidating and the intraday charts suggest narrow rage activity likely to continue in the near future. We are of the view that the medium-term trend is bullish and buying on dips and sell on rallies would be the ideal strategy for the positional traders. 16150-16050 /54000-53500 would be the strong support zone. Trading above the same uptrend wave is likely to continue till 16400-16550/ 54700-55000. Below 16050/ 53500 breakout traders may prefer to exit from trading long positions.
