During the recent correction, Nifty took support at 10-week EMA and bounced back. Nifty has never closed below its 10-week EMA since May 2021, which is currently placed at 17,780 odd levels.

On the higher side, Nifty is likely to find Immediate resistance at 18,342 and 18,600 levels.

Declines outnumbered the advances on November 15 while the number of stocks making new 52-week highs are falling during the last few days, indicating only selective stocks are doing well from the Midcap/Small caps space. Therefore, for traders our advice is to be very selective in buying Midcap/Small cap stocks for the short term.
