Nifty continued its upward journey for the third day in a row and closed at new high of 17,946 on October 11. Intermediate uptrend remains bullish as Nifty has been making higher tops and higher bottoms over the last several months. Nifty has been trading above the rising 20 and 50-day EMA (exponential moving average), which gives further evidence of an uptrend.
The 14-month RSI (relative strength index) at 80 is not extremely overbought and is below its previous high of 2007 and 2014, which again suggests scope for more upside in the coming weeks and months. Intermediate upside targets for the Nifty are at 18,200 and 18,450.
In the Options segment, Put writing was seen at 17,600-17,700. During the last correction, Nifty found support around 17,600 level and bounced back. This level also coincides with the 20-day EMA which is currently placed at 17,630-odd levels. Therefore, we believe that short-term trend will remain intact till Nifty is trading above 17,600 levels.
Meanwhile, Bank Nifty has broken out on the daily chart by surpassing the previous resistance of 38,171. It is expected to move towards the next targets of 38,800 and 39,500 for the coming weeks.
Also, Nifty Midcap and Smallcap Indices closed at all-time high levels. During the October month till now, they have outperformed by rising 4 percent and 5 percent, respectively, as against 2 percent rise in the Nifty. Advances have outperformed the declines in six out of seven days of the October month. We believe that there is more upside left for Smallcap/Midcap stocks and they may continue their outperformance for the coming weeks and months.
To conclude, the short-term trend is expected to remain positive for both Nifty and Bank Nifty. Next upside target for Nifty is seen around 18,200, followed by 18,450. Longs should be protected with trailing stop loss of 17,600 in Nifty and 37,500 in the Bank Nifty.
