Traders are advised to remain cautious and maintain a strict stop loss below 10,028 for all long positions.
The Nifty, which started on a flat note gained momentum, but remained volatile throughout the trade on Thursday, closed with marginal gains. It made a ‘Spinning Top’ kind of pattern on the daily charts for the second day in a row.
The index remained choppy for the most part of the trading session and finally closed with the marginal gains of 7 points at 10,086.60. It rose marginally to 10,126.50 but then witnessed selling pressure which took the index towards its intraday low of 10,070.35.
A Spinning Top candle is often regarded as a neutral pattern which suggests indecisiveness among both bulls as well as bears.
When a Spinning Top is formed in an uptrend, the one we are in right now, suggests that the buyers are losing conviction and a possible top could be in place, but it will still require confirmation.
The previous record high of 10,137 becomes an important level which bulls need to surpass in the coming sessions if they want to remain in control of D-Street. Traders are advised to remain cautious and maintain a strict stop loss below 10,028 for all long positions.
“It was a day of consolidation on the bourses as Nifty registered a Spinning Top kind of indecisive formation, for the second day in a row, after moving in a narrow range of around 50 points,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, Chartviewindia.in told Moneycontrol.
“This kind of indecisiveness on the part of bulls near the critical resistance point of 10,137 is a cause for concern. Hence, unless this resistance point is taken off in next trading session this rally may not get extended further there by paving the way for a fresh leg of downside,” he said.
Mohammad advises traders to remain cautious with a tight stop below 10,028 levels. On the other hand, any breakout above 10,137 levels shall extend this pull back rally up to 10,205.
India VIX fell by 2.47% at 11.47 and lower VIX below 12.50 is holding the market even on declines.
