The Nifty50 on the weekly time frame has managed to breach above the 20-week SMA after witnessing a strong bounce from the swing low of 14,151 recorded on April 22.

On the options open interest front (May 6, 2021 expiry), huge participation and open interest addition are seen in the 14,500 Puts. On the call side, participation is seen in the 15,000 call contracts.

Thus, going ahead, we can expect the broader range of the Nifty to be 14,500-15,000. On the indicator front, the relative strength index (RSI) plotted on the daily and the weekly and Daily time frame can be seen moving higher as the prices move higher, indicating the presence of bullish momentum in the trend.

Going ahead, 15,000-15,050 will act as a key resistance level, and if the prices break above the 15,050 mark, we might see the index move higher towards the 15,292-15,300 (Resistance cluster level).

On the downside, the 14,624 (20-Day SMA) is the level to watch out for, if the index manages to move below this level, we might see the index move lower towards the 14,330 (23.8% retracement level of the rise from 10,790-15,431) mark and eventually towards the 14,151 (2-week low).

Close

To sum it up, the index seems to have found support near 14,151 and is moving higher. The key level to watch for on the upside is 15,000-15,050. If this level is breached, we might expect further upside towards 15,292-15,300.

Our bullish view will be negated if the index breaches below the 14624-mark, beyond which we might see the index move lower towards 14,330.
