The Nifty stayed in the red for the second straight session, dragged by weak global cues, on August 22.
The long-term chart indicates that any sharp downward correction can be considered a buy-on-dips opportunity. On the downside, an immediate support is placed around 17,330 levels, which is 23.6 percent retracement of the entire rise from the bottom of June (15,183) to Friday's high (17,992). The 20-day EMA (exponential moving average) support is also coinciding with the retracement levels and, therefore, on the downside, the Nifty is likely to find strong support around 17,300-17,400 levels.
We believe that this is a running correction in the overall uptrend. Therefore, our advice is to use any correction from here on towards 17,300-17,400 levels to accumulate longs with the stop-loss of 17,000 levels.
