On a lower side, crucial support is seen at 20 DMA standing around 9,600 mark and any decisive move below this zone can push Nifty lower towards 50 DMA around 9,300 mark.
Last week witnessed not only a roller coaster movement filled with high volatility where the market swung in red and green zone, but also finally settled near the major psychological mark of 10,000.
The continuous formation of bullish 'Heikin Ashi candle' suggests bulls are not ready to lose their grip so easily and are defending its lower crucial support standing around 9,900 levels.
Nifty is trading above 20 DMA and mid-term moving average 50 DMA indicating bullish bias, at the same further rally can come only once Nifty closes above 100 DMA standing around 10,200 levels.
Andrew Pitchfork on the recent swing pivot points on the daily chart of Nifty shows the middle line of the fork is standing around 10,700 mark. This line acts as a magnet to prices, hinting that the price can trade higher to 10,700 to touch it.
However, on a lower side, crucial support is seen at 20 DMA standing around 9,600 mark and any decisive move below this zone can push the index lower towards 50 DMA around 9,300 mark.
Banking index traded in a range of 2,000 points in the last week; 20 DMA and line of parity standing around 19,500 acted as strong support in the fall during the last trading session. Any decisive closing above swing high standing around 21,600 will reverse the mid-term trend and prices can trade higher towards 100 DMA placed around 23,800.
