Nifty for the past 2 weeks has been moving higher after bouncing off the 14,467-mark.
On the daily timeframe, we can see that the index has been in a range for the last 6 sessions, moving between 14,862 and 15,273. The index remains above the long-term moving averages of 50, 100 and 200-day SMA.
The RSI, moving higher on the short- and medium-term timeframe, indicates the presence of bullish momentum in the index.
Based on the above parameters, the index seems to be moving higher and seems to have started the next phase of upside.
On the upside, the key resistance level is 15,273 (the upper range of the consolidation). If the index sustains above this level, we might see the index heading higher towards 15,650 (1 percent extension level of the rise from 13,131-14,753.5 projected form 13,596) and eventually towards 15,910 (78.6 percent extension level of the rise from 13,596-15,431 projected from 14,467).
The key support levels to watch for in the short term are 14,862 (lower range of the 6-day consolidation), followed by 14,467 (recent swing low).
Currently, the index is in a range and is moving between 15,273 and 14,862.
Looking at the technical multiple timeframe charts and the technical parameters, we expect the index to break out from the range and move higher towards 15,650, followed by 15,910.
The above analysis will not hold the trend if the index breaches and closes below the 14,862-mark. If this level is breached, we might see the correction continuing towards 14,467.
