The market rebounded on January 7 after losing a percent in the previous session, backed by banks, oil and gas, select FMCG and IT stocks, while the broader markets gained too, with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Smallcap 100 indices rising half-a-percent and 0.4 percent, respectively.
On Friday, the BSE Sensex rallied 142.81 points to 59,744.65, while the Nifty50 climbed 66.80 points to 17,812.70 and formed Doji kind of pattern on the daily charts, while there was bullish candle formation on the weekly scale. The index gained 2.6 percent during the week.
“Albeit the Nifty50 signed off the week with a decent bullish candle on the weekly charts, it is registering indecisive formations on a daily chart hinting that it is in the process of chalking out a consolidation zone between 17,944 and 17,655 levels,” said Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research and Trading Advisory at Chartviewindia.
Going forward, he said, to retain the positive bias, the index needs to sustain above the 17,655 levels and strength shall arise only on a close above the 17,944 levels. “In such a scenario, an upswing can expand into the zone of 18,165 to 18,210 levels.”
Contrary to this, a close below 17,655 can drag down the index towards 17,400 levels where 50-day moving average is present, he said.
Therefore, Mazhar Mohammad advised short-term traders to wait for a directional move to emerge and trade in the direction of the breakout.
