Indian market rallied by more than 3 percent for the week ended October 1. The S&P BSE Sensex reclaimed 38,000 while the Nifty50 closed above 11,400 levels.

Interestingly, the Nifty is now trading above 20-DMA, 50-DMA, 100-DMA, and 200-DMA on daily as well as weekly time frame which is a clear sign that prices are in complete control of bulls.

The index is trading above crucial short and long-term moving averages but it is also trading near crucial resistance levels. Hence, a decisive close above 11,500-11,600 levels is required for bulls to remain in control.


“Strong buying will emerge on a decisive trade above 11,630 levels which is the previous three week’s high. Price Momentum Indicator (PMI) has given bullish crossover with its average and as long as it in buy mode, one can maintain buy on dip strategy,” Shabbir Kayyumi, Head of Technical Research at Narnolia Financial Advisors Ltd told Moneycontrol.

“However, confirmation of the original trend will come on a breakout of the slanting trend line which is standing near 11500 psychological marks. Moreover, Nifty can trade in a range of previous high standing around 11800 and crucial point of polarity placed at 11111 for the coming weeks,” he said.
