Lower side support is maintained around 10,700-10,800 levels.
The Nifty is inching forward steadily and has managed to close above the short-term moving average 20 DMA. It has also managed to close above the previous week's high (10,967) on the back of sustained buying, which suggests that positive bias will continue.
For the last 35 days, the Nifty is trading in a range of mere 350 points. However, Bollinger band squeeze can also be seen on the charts, which suggests volatility breakout can come above the upper band placed around 11,181 levels that can add strength in the current upmove. Declining histogram in MACD in the weekly timeframe is also creating optimism.
Key breakout will come if the Nifty manages to close above crucial levels of August’s high (11,181), only then can prices push higher towards last swing high placed around 11,585 levels. Lower side support is maintained at around 10,700-10,800.
The banking index has managed to close above the previous week's high, forming a strong long body bullish pattern, indicating that a positive bias will continue. Nevertheless, a sustained move above last 5-weeks high, placed around 28,500 levels, will give a fresh breakout and prices can extend higher towards 20-week SMA standing around 29,510 levels. Moreover, the trading range for banking index will be 29,000-27,500 for the coming week.
