In the week gone by, the bulls dominated throughout. In the penultimate week, the Nifty had formed an inside bar on the weekly chart, whereas last week it broke out on the upside, leading to a sharp upmove.
On the way up, the index has crossed its short and medium term falling trend line. It also surpassed the 78.6 percent retracement of the fall from 11,171 to 9,951 as well as the May high of 10,929.
As per the principle of role reversal, all these parameters that earlier acted as resistances shall now assume the role of supports. Major support for the benchmark stands at 10,800.
The daily as well as weekly Bollinger Bands are in expansion mode, thus allowing the bulls to stretch their arms. Momentum indicators on these timeframes are in favour of the bulls.
On the higher side, 11,100-11,171 is a crucial hurdle zone to watch out for. If the bulls manage to cross that region then we can look for significantly higher levels.
