Nifty opened with an upward gap and witnessed selling in the initial hour on November 25. However, the buying momentum at 17,350 levels pulled the index higher to close near the day’s high.
The daily price action has formed a bullish candle and remained consolidated within 17,600-17,350 levels. Any sustainable move above 17,600 levels may cause an upside momentum towards 17,700-17,800 levels.
On the flip side, 17,500-17,400 levels are likely to act as a support zone. The Nifty is trading below 20-day and 50-day SMA (simple moving average) representing near-term bearish bias.
One should use any pullback towards 17,700-17,800 levels as a selling opportunity with a stop loss at 17,850. The daily strength indicator RSI (relative strength index) has turned bearish, indicating weakness ahead.
