Nifty witnessed a gap up opening on August 4 and created a continuation gap on the daily chart and since then it has been trading in a very narrow range of 16,200–16,350.

The index on August 11 opened in the green but couldn’t hold its opening gains. It closed above 16,250.

Out of the last five trading sessions, Nifty formed a Doji-type candlestick formation in three sessions and whenever it dipped near 16,200 – 16,150 levels, we have seen a smart recovery.

Long wicks are getting formed in the daily candlestick chart. This setup indicates a volatile market and buying occurs near the demand zone of the index.

Market breadth has been in the favour of the bears for the last couple of trading sessions.
