11,600 is acting as a change of polarity as earlier support has become resistance. A sustained trade above 11,600 may induce rally towards 11,850 - 12,000.
The Nifty50 has now moved below its recent swing low which was placed at 11,625 and, so far, sustained below it. The Nifty has given a smaller trend-line breakdown on the daily chart on July 10.
The recent movement is an indication for rising pessimism among the participants. Going forward, the huge gap which was left open during exit poll day is likely to get filled.
The candlesticks of the previous two-days - Hammer and Inverted Hammer candles - suggest a bullish reversal. Henceforth, bounce back from the current level cannot be ruled out.
The medium-term trend still remains positive as the benchmark index is trading in a Higher High and Higher Low formation in a Rising Channel pattern.
A decisive break below 11,400 may drift prices below 11,100 which will act as near-term support for the Nifty.
On the higher end, 11,600 is acting as a change of polarity as the earlier support has become resistance. A sustained trade above 11,600 may induce rally towards 11,850 – 12,000.
