Q) What led to the price action on D-Street in the week gone by?
A) Whether it is in terms of trading range or weekly gains, the last week remained relatively quiet for the market. Bajaj Twins and Reliance Industries and some few metal stocks brought the market up.

A) Initially, the Nifty may come down to fill the price gap, which it has left on a weekly basis. It is between the levels of 10,631 and 10,676.
In case, the Nifty fails to fill the same fully, then it would result in sharp recovery in the second later part of the week.
The Nifty50 has major supports at 10,676, 10,631, and at 10,550. On the higher side, 10,850, 10,980, and 11,100 would be hurdles.Q) Any particular strategy which traders could execute for the week?
A) The strategy should be to buy on declines. Buy Nifty between 10,650 and 10,550. Keep a final stop loss at 10,450 for the same.
