Trade setup for July 4: A bounceback on the cards for Nifty50 as the bulls defend 15,700 – CNBCTV18

Indian equity benchmarks closed lower for a third straight day on Friday, as gains in financial, IT and FMCG stocks were offset by losses in oil & gas shares. Globally, aggressive hikes in pandemic-era interest rates and their impact on the economy continued to keep investors on the back foot.

What do the charts suggest for Dalal Street now?

The Nifty50 has formed a small negative candle on the daily chart with a long lower shadow, suggesting a bottom reversal in the short term, according to Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.

A false downside breakout of a small range at 15,700 is a positive sign, he said.

Key support at 15,700 

“If there is no aberration on the global front, we will not be surprised to see the Nifty50 cross 15,900-16,000 this week, for which, banking needs to come to the fore… The extremely well performance of the broader indices towards the fag-end of the last week is an encouraging sign,” Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives at Angel One, told

He sees strong support at the sacrosanct 15,700 mark followed by by 15,500 this week. “It’s a daunting task for the bulls to get past the sturdy wall around 15,900-16,000,” he said.

Here are key things to know about the market ahead of the July 4 session:

Singapore Exchange (SGX) Nifty futures — an early indicator of the Nifty index — gave up initial gains to decline as much as 56.5 points or 0.4 percent to 15,688 ahead of the opening bell on Dalal Street on Monday.

Global markets

Equities in other Asian markets were a mixed bag on Monday as investors on Wall Street were in a long weekend following a bounceback in key indices on Friday. MSCI’s broadest index of Asia Pacific shares outside Japan was down 0.2 percent at the last count.

Japan’s Nikkei 225 was up 0.6 percent and China’s Shanghai Composite 0.2 percent. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng was down 0.5 percent.

S&P 500 futures were down 0.7 percent. Wall Street will resume trade on Tuesday, after the main indices jumped around one percent on Friday.

What to expect on Dalal Street

Nagaraj Shetti, Technical & Derivative Analyst, HDFC Securities believes the 50-script index continues to be in a rangebound short-term trend through Friday’s recovery from the lows hints at more upside.

A sustainable move only above 15,900-15,950 levels could bring the bulls back into the market, which could possibly pull the Nifty towards levels of 16,200-16,300 quickly, with immediate support at 15,630,” he said.

Important levels to track

The Nifty50 continues to be about eight percent below its long-term simple moving average.
