Nifty continued its northward journey for the second day in a row where it gained a whopping 177 points to close at 11,228.

Last week, Nifty took support at 200-day SMA and bounced back nearly 450 points during the first two trading sessions of the October series.

Close

The short-term trend has turned bullish as Nifty surpassed its 5-day simple moving average for the first time after September 17 which is currently placed at 11,074.

In the Nifty Options segment, we have seen Put writing at 11,000 levels.

Therefore, there are multiple pieces of evidence that suggest that on the downside, Nifty is likely to find strong support in the range of 11,000-11,100 and unless the index closes below 11,000, this pullback rally may continue.

Immediate resistance is seen around 11,300 which is the 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of the correction seen from the high of 11,800 to the low of 10,790 levels.

A close above 11,300 would give bulls full control as it would lead to a short-covering which might push Nifty to the next resistance level of 11,600.

Bank Nifty, which had been underperforming during the current uptrend, will outperform from here on we believe.

Bank Nifty has broken out from the downward sloping trendline on the daily line chart. One can remain bullish about the banking index with the stop loss of 21,000.

On the higher side, we expect Bank Nifty to reach 23,000 in days to come.

After witnessing a correction of nearly 10 percent from the August high, Nifty Mid and Smallcap indices resumed its uptrend where they surged 6 percent during the last two days.

We continue to believe that mid and small-caps, which have outperformed the benchmark index from the March lows till now, will continue their outperformance for the coming weeks and months also.

The focus of the traders should be on mid and small-caps that are likely to continue their outperformance for the coming weeks and months.
