Nifty technical outlook

Speaking on Nifty 50 index outlook, Mehul Kothari, AVP — Technical Research at Anand Rathi said, “The bearish shark pattern on the Nifty 50 index is still intact. In addition, the index has breached previous week’s low after nine week and this indicates first sign of weakness. Also we are witnessing a reversal candlestick pattern on the weekly scale. We reiterate that; even a bare minimum correction of 38.6% of the entire rally from 15200 to 18000 could lead to a bigger crack in the stocks. Thus, we maintain our stance that the prudent strategy can be to avoid fresh longs in index and book profits in trading bets.:

Mehul Kothari further added, “On the downside; 17350 might a crucial support for the coming weeks. A breach of this support might drag the index towards 17000 – 16800 levels. On the upside; 17750 – 18000 might be a supply zone for the coming weeks. We would turn aggressive bullish only on a close above 18000 mark. The recent price action indicates signs of some distribution and hence we have a cautious stance on the markets.”

Nifty Bank technical outlook

“Nifty Bank index recovered back to reclaim 39,000 mark and end the week extremely flat. We maintain a cautious stance on Nifty Bank index and below 38,000 we might see a corrective move toward 37,000 to 36,000 in the coming weeks. The view would be negated above 40,000 mark on closing basis and that would affirm a fresh breakout in the index,” said Mehul Kothari.
