Stewart & Mackertich’s Technical View

Taking global market cues Nifty is expected to open flat to positive. Immediate resistance is placed around 9380. 9420 is the next resistance. Nifty is likely to hold intraday positive momentum as long as it trades above 9300. Downside support is placed around 9260. Further, due to April series F&O expiry we expect Nifty to remain volatile in today’s session.

Previous day, Nifty hit all-time high of 9367 and ended up by 0.49 percent at 9351.85. Early morning positive momentum failed to progress beyond our second resistance of 9380 followed by sharp intraday retracement towards day’s low 9302. However, it recovered from day’s low and ended the session with a hammer kind of candle. Ending the session above our resistance of 9340 means upswing may continue for coming sessions as well. Upside resistances are placed around 9380 and 9420.

On the Nifty hourly chart, RSI has reached its overbought zone. And that caused mid-session sharp retracement towards 9302. Hence, investors are advised to be extremely cautious on rise and extremely selective about stock picking. Down side crucial supports are placed around 9300 and 9260.

Considering Nifty multiple time frames and overall chart pattern that shows; Nifty recovery triggered by positive divergence in hourly RSI led to a closing above 9340. Next resistances are placed around 9380 and 9420. However, negative divergence in Nifty daily RSI is still a concern.

Previous day, Bank Nifty closed at 22242.85 (up 0.85 percent). Immediate resistance is placed around 22350. While, the pivotal support is placed around 22100.
