The Nifty remained volatile throughout the week as the index plunged to a lower level after opening with huge gap-down in Friday’s trading session. Bears continued to remain in the realm as the market absorbed a weak set of global cues especially on US trade tariff coupled with retaliation from China.
Despite Nifty attempted to reclaim the uptrend regime for two sessions, but the overnight event which ignited fears of trade war dragged the index to breach below its psychological level of 10000 and closed with weak sentiment at 9998 levels down by 1.93 percent on weekly basis.
The index formed a strong bearish candlestick pattern on its weekly price chart coupled with the small bearish pattern on its daily price chart. The weekly RSI level stood at 32 down from 37 level of last week coupled with sustained weak cues on MACD and Signal Line.
Further, Bollinger bands showed a price hitting lower band which is a negative signal. Based on Fibonacci Retracement, as price continues to trade below all the levels an immediate support for the index is placed at 9951 levels and crucial resistance at 10417 levels.
The developing concerns over widening trade war coupled with its cascading effect for Indian market and new set banking fraud case is likely to keep index with woes.
Further, ahead of F&O expiry this week the volatility trade can’t be ruled out. It will be advisable to trade with cautions and follow stock specific opportunities with a tight stop-loss.
