Close

On the weekly chart, Nifty has formed a bullish higher top higher bottom pattern. A similar pattern is also observed in the midcap and smallcap indices, indicating broad-based rally in the markets.

ADX (14), the trend strength Indicator, is trading above 25 levels, indicating strong momentum in the uptrend.

Earlier resistance of 10,500-10,550 would interchange its role as a support.

In the derivatives segment, we have seen Put writing at 10,500 levels. Therefore, 10,500-10,550 levels would act as immediate support for the Nifty.

On the higher side, resistance is seen around 10,900 where 200-day SMA is placed.

In the month of June, the advance-decline ratio stood at 1.54 levels which was the highest monthly advance-decline ratio since May 2009.

This Indicates that midcap and smallcap indices that outperformed the benchmark indices during the last few months after two years of underperformance starting January 2018 are likely to do well during the coming months also.

Our advice is to remain long in the Nifty with the trailing stop loss of 10,500 levels.

Resistance is seen in the vicinity of 10,900-11,000 levels. After a sharp rise in the benchmark indices during the last few days, the focus of the traders should be on midcaps and smallcaps that are likely to continue their outperformance during the coming weeks and months.
