Traders can adopt buy on dips approach until the support level holds and expect the trading range of 12,721 to 13,050 levels.
Bulls continued having an upper hand throughout the last trading week, and the Nifty registered a gain of approximately 140 points on a week-on-week basis. The cautious stance of traders was visible near the psychological mark of 13,000 and mild profit-booking was witnessed at higher levels.
Though the index is facing multiple resistance levels in the 13,000 to 13,050 range and profit booking at higher levels might not be ruled out but, the bullish trend will remain intact until the level of 12,721 holds on the lower side. The medium-term rising trend line formed by joining the highs of August 28, 2018, and January 20, 2020, is likely to act as resistance at the 12,970 levels. Also, as per the Fibonacci theory, the prices are approaching the 161.8 percent projected retracement level based on the previous month's trading range.
The small body candle formed in the weekly time frame suggests that the ongoing rally might see a halt in the short term. On the other hand, the rising window formed on November 17, in the latest month is likely to provide a cushion to the prices on any dip till 12,721. The violation of the aforementioned support level on a closing basis could disturb the ongoing bullish trend and the fall could extend to the 12,510 level.
To put things into perspective, traders can adopt buy on dips approach until the support level holds and expect the trading range of 12,721 to 13,050 levels.
