In case of any decline, Nifty will continue to find support around 11,800-11,700 levels, which coincides with horizontal trendline supports and will act as a line of polarity.
The benchmark index has formed a Small Rounding Bottom pattern on the daily chart, and the base for that got created near 11,800 levels. The Nifty sustained its gap-up opening on November 20 but witnessed mild profit booking on an intraday trading basis.
In the last few sessions, we saw cooling off in the Nifty as it went through some consolidation phase as well. But, the gap-up opening of November 20 looks encouraging now as it managed to give a convincing close beyond its previous seven days candle on a daily basis with slightly average volume.
In the derivatives front, put writing was seen at 11,800-11,700 strike prices, indicating Nifty is likely to find strong support in the 11,700-11,800 range.
Unless Nifty closes below it, the trend would be considered bullish for the markets from the derivative side. On the higher side, call writing was seen at 12,000 levels.
The Nifty Metal and Pharma index is well poised for a new rally which can be visible on the weekly chart. State-run banks are a major centre of attraction since the past couple of trading sessions and current chart formation suggests that investors should hold on to their bullish positions with trailing stop loss.
The Nifty Bank, on the other hand, is showing continuous outperformance against benchmark Nifty.
In case of any decline, the index will continue to find support around 11,800-11,700 levels, which coincides with horizontal trendline supports and will act as a line of polarity (resistance will act as support).
However, a stable move above 12,050 levels will invalidate resistance and strengthen the index to record new life-time-high until 12,300 odd levels.
