Trade setup for Thursday: Top 10 things you should know before Opening Bell

India VIX moved up by 5.58 percent at 11.73. The market witnessed a sudden spike in volatility as index broke above its higher lows after the seven trading sessions

Bulls failed to keep the momentum going as Nifty came under pressure as soon as it came close to its crucial resistance level of 10,080 and made a ‘Bearish Engulfing Pattern’ on the daily candlestick charts on Wednesday.

The index wiped out gains made in the previous session but managed to close above its crucial short-term moving averages such as 5-days exponential moving average (DEMA), 50-DEMA, 10-DEMA, 13 and 50-DEMA.

Nifty index failed to continue its formation of higher lows and corrected by around 100 points from its intraday high levels to 9,950. The bears might try and regains their foothold on D-Street if Nifty closes below 9,950 levels.

A Bearish Engulfing Pattern consists of two candles. One candle is usually a small candle which is followed by a large black or red candlestick pattern that engulfs the short one or the previous candle.

A bearish candlestick pattern suggests that bears were able to regain control after the index moved in a narrow range for the past few sessions. It is usually seen as the end of an uptrend but if index breaks below its crucial support level of 9,950, selling pressure could accelerate.

The Nifty opened at 10,042.60 and made a high of 10,067.25 which resulted in small upper shadow. It pared gains and corrected below 9,900 to record its intraday low of 9,984.80 which resulted in small lower shadow.

“The Nifty registered a Bearish Engulfing Formation in line with our projections as it reversed the course from the right technical resistance point placed around 10,080 levels,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory,

“In next trading session if the indices trade below 9,955-levels for at least one hour then selling pressure shall build up thereby marking the end of pullback attempt from the lows of 9,687 and traders should prepare to see deep cuts towards the levels of 9,863 to 9,760, going forward,” he said.

Mohammad further added that traders are advised to shift focus on stock-specific activity and can consider short positions in the index, below 9,955 levels, with a stop of 10,090 for the targets placed around 9,850.
