Nifty technical outlook
Speaking on Nifty outlook, Rajesh Palviya, VP – Technical & Derivative Research at Axis Securities said, “On the daily chart, the index has formed a bullish candle. However, it remained restricted within the previous session’s High-Low range, indicating the absence of strength on either side. The index is moving in a Higher Top and Higher Bottom formation on the daily chart, indicating an uptrend. The chart pattern suggests that if the Nifty crosses and sustains above the 17700 level, it would witness buying, which would lead the index towards 17800-17900 levels. However, if the index breaks below the 17500 level, it would witness selling, which would take the index towards 17400-17300.”
Rajesh Palviya of Axis Securities went on to add that Nifty is trading above its 20, 50, 100, and 200-day SMA which indicates positive bias in the short term. Nifty continues to remain in an uptrend for the short term, so buying on dips continues to be our preferred strategy. The daily strength indicator RSI has turned negative from the overbought territory and is below its reference line, indicating profit booking.
