“Nifty is expected to open positive at 17560, up by 60 points. Nifty will face resistance in the 17600-17650 range. Overall the trend in Nifty is weak and traders are suggested to exit long positions either on rallies or with strict stop-loss. Nifty has strong support in the 17200-17250 range.” said Gaurav Udani, CEO & Founder, ThincRedBlu Securities.
On the technical front, chartists say, domestic markets are still not out of the bearish grip and advise trading with extreme caution. “While we closed in the green, it cannot be summarized that we are out of the bearish woods. The Nifty would need to get past the 17800-17900 levels to restart the upward trajectory,” said Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments. He added that until said levels are crossed, markets are sensitive to price and volume and a little shift in the sentiment can result in a downward spiral which can take the index to 16900-17000.
“Structurally, our view remains bullish on the Indian equities. However, in the near term, there are signs of some exhaustion in the equity rally after the ferocious rise seen over the past few months. FII inflows have also paused after hefty buying in August and September. This can be attributed to expectations of faster than expected normalisation of the Fed’s monetary policy. Recent FII outflows can also be seen as a year-end phenomenon, but the flows are expected to return next year. There is pressure on a few heavyweights like Reliance, which is dragging the benchmark index down. Having said that the correction which we have seen in Nifty and Sensex is of a lower magnitude when compared with the base levels during the past. So, the hue and cry over the ongoing correction seem to be overblown. Nevertheless, the markets are certainly taking a pause and the correction could extend by another 5%. On the broader perspective, we reiterate our bullish stance, with our positive rationale very much in place. We see Nifty during 2022 at much higher levels than 2021.”

“Index witnessed some pullback and closed a day at 17503 with gains of half percent & formed bullish candle after five consecutive red candles. The index has formed stiff hurdle around 17550-17650 zone & logs need to watch said levels carefully if nifty managed to sustain above 17650 zone then one can expect a good pullback towards 17800-18000 mark but if it fails to sustain again we may see profit booking which can push index towards support zone of 17400-17300 zone.”
