Nifty has been consolidating in the narrow range of 350 points between 16,440 and 16,794 for last 6 trading sessions till June 6. During this period, Nifty took support around 16,440 for three times. Previous swing highs on the daily chart has also been projecting strong support at 16,400 in Nifty.
Nifty has partially filled the gap, which was formed on May 30 between 16,370 and 16,506. However, on the upside 200 days exponential moving average (EMA), placed at 16,745, is expected to provide strong resistance in the days to come. Nifty has also been holding higher tops and higher bottoms on the daily chart, which indicates continuation of an uptrend. Bullish setup for Nifty would be violated below 16,400 level.
Considering the technical evidences discussed above, we feel that market trend would remain choppy in the short term. For fresh breakout, Nifty has to surpass the hurdle of 16,800 on closing basis. Existing long positions can be held with the stop-loss of 16,400. Below 16,400, Nifty could slide towards next support of 16,000.
