On the downside breaking below 10,641, market can see decline towards 10,535 and then 10,350
Sanctum Wealth ManagementFollowing positive global cues, the market saw a gap up opening, but lack of followthrough action saw the Nifty closed with a gain of 0.41 percent
at 10,772 on January 7. For the day, BSE MidCap and SmallCap closed flat.
Market breadth on NSE was also 1:1. Intraday, Nifty filled the opening gap and has formed small bearish candlestick for the day. But looking at trading action from December 2018, the index has been rangebound with higher end capped at 10,985 levels, and on the lower side forming higher lows indicating buying coming at higher levels. Thus, forming an Ascending Triangle that is a bullish pattern and breakout is expected on the upside.
Now, January 4 low of 10,641 becomes critical that it needs to hold for the market to see breakout on the upside. Immediate resistance is seen at 10,836, but Nifty needs to cross 10,985 with momentum and sustain above it for breakout to be confirmed. Then the index can rally towards 11,090 and 11,160 initially.
On the downside, breaking below 10,641, the market can see decline towards 10,535 and then 10,350. In Nifty options, maximum open interest for Puts has been seen at strike price 10,500 followed by 10,000. For Calls, it has been seen at strike price 11,000 followed by 11,500.

India VIX closed at 16.30, up by 0.9 percent for the day. It needs to sustain below 16 for the market to move higher.
