The Nifty broke the two-day losing streak on January 23 on the back of strong global cues and closed with 91 points gain at 18,119.

The short-term trend in the Nifty looks positive as the index trades above its five-day and 11-day EMA (exponential moving average). The Nifty Open Interest Put Call ratio surged to 0.94 level from 0.83 level on the back of aggressive Put writing at 18,000-18,100 levels. The Nifty has closed above downward sloping trendline resistance, adjoining the highs of December 1 and December 14, 2022.

For last four weeks, the benchmark index has been consolidating in the narrow range of 17,761-18,265, forming a descending triangle pattern on the daily chart with multiple bottoms in the range of 17,750-17,800. Therefore, on the downside, 17,800 could now be considered as an immediate support for the Nifty and one should remain bullish with stop-loss of 17,800 level.

On the upside 18,185-18,265 could act as an immediate resistance for Nifty. We may see upside momentum once it manages to surpass recent swing high of 18,265 convincingly.
