The Nifty has been consolidating in the range of 17,400-17,600 for the last few sessions. It made a short-term top at 17,778 on August 30 and that has become the near-term resistance for the index now. For the confirmation of medium-term uptrend resuming, it has to surpass the 17,800-point  resistance.

On the downside, 17,400 and 17,150 are crucial supports to watch out for. Historically, September has been muted for the index and the same is expected in the current year as well.

However, on the positive side, the Indian markets have been resilient so far against the global market uncertainty. The Nifty has outperformed in most of the developed and emerging markets in the last one month. The icing on the cake is that the Smallcap Index has started participating after a nice run-up of large-caps from the June 2022 bottoms.

Breadth of the market has been improving day by day. The number of stocks, their 200-DMA and the number of stocks making new 52-week highs for the NSE500 index have been improving on a consistent basis. The advance decline ratio has also been great through the last few trading sessions. Strong breadth indicates a healthy bull market.

We believe that the benchmark indices like the Nifty and the Sensex could consolidate or may witness minor corrections in the near term, as there is no support coming in from global equity markets. However, we cannot rule out the possibility of mid-cap and small-cap segment to perform well in the coming days.
