Trade Setup for Tuesday: Top 10 things you should know before Opening Bell

Here are the top ten data points to help you spot profitable trade.

The Nifty closed above its crucial psychological level of 9,650 on Monday and also above its short term moving averages such as 5-days exponential moving average (DEMA), 10-DEMA, and 20-DEMA which is a bullish sign.

There was no particular pattern which the index formed but it made a bullish candle on the daily candlestick charts as the closing level was higher than the opening level. The index finally closed 69.50 points higher at 9,657.

The big move could also be a result of short covering which propped the index towards 9,700. This was evident from the advance-decline ratio which sits at 99 issues advancing compared with 112 declining.

The momentum is likely to strengthen further once it crosses Nifty record high placed at 9,709.30. Monday’s move negated the formation of lower top–lower bottom and given the upside breakout from its falling channel on the hourly scale.
