Trade Setup for Monday: Top 10 things you should know before Opening Bell
The bulls maintained their hold on D-Street throughout the trading session on Friday unlike the three preceding sessions when it moved in a narrow range on either side. The index registered a positive close for the seventh straight session and made a strong bull candle on the charts.
Formation of a strong bull candle on daily charts after ‘Doji’ type pattern formed on the charts for the past 4 trading sessions is a bullish sign. The index now trades above key short-term moving averages and MACD is also on the verge to give a bullish crossover.
The stars are aligning in the right direction for the bulls and as long as Nifty stays above 10350, the bulls could make an attempt to take out its record high placed at 10,490 if not in November series then in December series.
The index which opened at 10,366 slipped marginally to 10,363 in morning trade. The index rose to an intraday high of 10,490.45 before closing the day 40 points higher at 10,389.70.
“Albeit Nifty50 moved in a narrow range of 42 points it appears that it made a genuine attempt to break away from the sluggish phase witnessed in the last 4 trading sessions. On the weekly charts it registered a solid bull candle which has erased all the losses of preceding week,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, Chartviewindia.in told Moneycontrol.
“Hence, as long as Nifty50 sustains above 10300 levels one can take a positive stance and look for a retest of 10490 levels. However, as Nifty50 is facing resistance on longer time frame charts it looks prudent to have a tight stop below 10300 on a closing basis as a breach of this shall motivate the bears to put more pressure on the markets,” he said.
India VIX fell down by 2.51 percent at 13.51. VIX has to cool down below 13-12.50 zones to get the market stable which could propel the next round of rally towards new high territory.
