Nifty continued its winning streak for the second consecutive week and also continued to make a higher top and higher bottom formation on the daily chart.

If we take the retracement of the entire fall from the highs of 12,150 to the low of 7,511 then 38.2 percent retracement is coming around 9,315, which has been achieved successfully on Friday. Now, if Nifty manages to sustain above 9,300 levels then we can expect further momentum to continue towards 9,865 as well which is 50 percent retracement level of the entire fall.

The momentum indicator RSI is making a higher top and higher bottom formation and currently at 50.65 levels which hints of some positive momentum to continue.

Now, the immediate support is at 8,800 followed by 8,600, resistance is at 9,300 followed by 9,500.

The broader trend for Nifty continues to remain negative as long as it trades below 10,000 and currently, we are witnessing a ripple effect of a global market rally in Indian equities, too. So we can expect another leg on the downside once this pullback gets over.
