Angel One on Nifty: Overall sentiments are likely to remain upbeat in the near term.

Sameet Chavan, chief analyst-technical and derivatives, Angel One Ltd: The global weakness has embarked on some selling in our equity space, but the bulls of D-street were resilient to let go of the opportunity and firmly bought the dips. Technically, the positive structure has been shaken a bit as the technical swing support of 17350 got breached decisively. At the current juncture, the 21 DEMA and the recent unfilled gap around 17380-17520 are expected to act as an immediate hurdle for the index in the comparable period. While on the downside, 17150-17200 is expected to cushion any sort of fall, followed by the sacrosanct support of the unfilled gap around the psychological mark of 17000.

Going forward, a close tab should be held on the global and domestic macro developments. The overall sentiments are likely to remain upbeat in the near term, wherein any minor dip could be utilized as an opportunity for the bulls to add long positions. We might also witness significant traction outside the indices in the broader market. Hence, it’s advisable to keep focusing on such potential movers, which are likely to provide better trading opportunities.

Ashika Stock Broking recommends: Avoid trading aggressively amid global nervousness

Tirthankar Das, technical & derivative analyst, retail, Ashika Stock Broking Ltd: On the technical front, Nifty formed a bullish candle however lower high-low formation is in place indicating of negative bias or profit booking after the 13% rally seen over the past five weeks that led prices to the overbought trajectory. At the present juncture, one needs to avoid trading aggressively amid global nervousness. Thus, it would be sensible if one avoids fresh longs in index and book profits in trading bets. Considering the present situation, a bare minimum correction of 38.6% of the entire rally from 15,183 to 17,992 comes around 16900 followed by 50% correction at 16600. Hence hereon one can expect Index to witness a prolonged consolidation amidst 16800-17700 but positive structural foundation remains perfectly in place. On the upside Nifty need to sustain above 17350-17390 with some authority for the bulls to strengthen their stance.
