After falling 10 percent on Monday, bulls defended crucial levels of 7,500 which is 50 percent retracement mark from low of 2008 (2,252) and high of 2020 (12,430), giving relief to a sharp fall of almost 3,800 points in March.
Formation of positive divergence in RSI on a daily time frame supported reversing of prices, as index managed to take support from the strong demand zone standing around 7,500-7,300 levels on the higher time frame.
At the same time, Nifty confirmed short term reversal by closing above crucial resistance of 8,600 levels too.
But we need one higher closing on the weekly timeframe as a confirmation before declaring reversal and can start preparing for a push towards 20-DMA placed around 9,600.
On the flip side, a decisive close below strong psychological levels of 8,000 can push index towards the line of parity on a monthly time frame standing around 7,300 marks.
Banking Index has managed to close around crucial psychological levels of 20,000 and 5 day’s highest high is suggesting a reversal of short term trend and relief rally towards 25,000 levels cannot be ruled out; conversely, any decisive trading below 18,500 will be a sign of active bears.
