Nifty opened with an upward gap and the selling pressure in the first half dragged the index. However, some buying support along at the lower levels recovered some of the earlier losses to close on a flat note. The daily price action has formed a bearish candle carrying lower shadow indicating buying support at lower levels.
The Nifty closed at 14,677.8 with a loss of 18.70 points (-0.13%) while BSE Sensex gained 41 points (+0.09%). Since the past 8-9 consecutive weeks, the index continues to consolidate in a narrow range 15,000-14,400 levels representing short term sideways trend. Any decisive breakout above this 15,000 levels on a closing basis may cause strength towards 15,200-15,250 levels.
On the daily chart, Nifty continues to hold its 100-day SMA (14,575) which acts as support on the short term charts. The next higher levels to be watched are around 14,750 levels. Any sustainable move above 14,750 levels may cause momentum towards 14,850-14,900 levels.
On the downside, any violation of an intraday support zone of 14,600 levels may cause profit booking towards 14,550-14,500 levels. The daily strength indicator RSI and the momentum indicator Stochastic both have turned bearish along with negative crossover which remains a negative bias.
