The Nifty started the week on a flat note. It remained consolidated for the most part of the week and closed on a subdued note.

On the weekly chart, the index formed a Doji candle for the third consecutive week, indicating indecisiveness among market participants.

The index has formed a double top on the weekly chart. On the lower side, 11,800 is likely to act as a critical level in the near term, however, the index is moving in a higher-top and higher- bottom formation on the weekly chart, indicating a positive bias.

The chart pattern suggests that if the Nifty crosses and sustains above 12,035 level, it will witness fresh buying action that would lead the index towards 12,100-12,150 levels. If the index goes below 11,800, it will witness selling, which will take the Nifty towards 11,700-11,620.

The Nifty is trading above its 20, 50, 100 and 200-day simple moving average (SMA), which are an important short-term moving average, indicating positive bias in the short term.

The Nifty continues to remain in an uptrend in the medium term, so buying on dips continues to be our preferred strategy. For the week, we expect the Nifty to trade in the range of 12,100-11,750, with a mixed bias.

The weekly strength indicator Relative Strength Index (RSI) is moving upwards and is quoting above its reference line indicating a positive bias. However, the momentum oscillator Stochastic has turned negative from the overbought zone, pointing to a possible consolidation or a corrective move in the near term. We expect metals, housing finance, PSU banks to show bullishness in the coming weeks.

Bank Nifty

The Bank Nifty started the week on a flat note and traded with extreme volatility on either side. The Bank Nifty closed at 31,112, with a gain of 103 points on a weekly basis.

On the weekly chart the index has formed a ‘Doji’ candle. The index is moving in a higher top and higher bottom formation on the weekly chart, indicating a positive bias. The chart pattern suggests that if the Bank Nifty crosses and sustains above 31,480, it will witness buying that would lead the index to 31,660-31,780 levels.

However, if the index breaks below 30,970 level, it will witness selling that would take the Bank Nifty towards 30,750-30,300.

The Bank Nifty is trading above 20, 50, and 100 and 200- day SMA, indicating a positive bias in the short to medium term.

The Bank Nifty continues to remain in an uptrend in the medium term, so buying on dips continues to be our preferred strategy. For the week, we expect the Bank Nifty to trade in the range of 31,700-30,300, with a mixed bias.

The RSI and Stochastic have both turned positive and are above their respective reference lines, indicating a positive bias.
