In case of breakout, the index will face hurdle around its psychological level of 12,000.
Indices witnessed a dramatic turnaround on September 20 when the finance minister announced corporate tax cut from 35 percent to 25 percent. Since then, the entire chart structure has made a drastically-positive change in Nifty and the banking index.
The benchmark index witnessed profit booking on September 25 after a historical up move. Despite the recent indecisive set-up, the view will remain positive as its key technical indicator was positively poised above their averages and signals strength at current set up. The 100-day simple moving average is currently pegged near 11,400, which will act as a crucial support in the coming days.
In case the index slips below the upper band of recent positive gap (placed near 11,400 level), a near-term corrective move cannot be ruled out. On the lower side, Nifty will find strong support around 11,200 mark, which is supported by a 50 EMA on weekly interval. However, a stable move above its mid-July high (placed at 11,707 level) will bring back the exuberance of climbing higher levels back in trade. In case of a breakout, the index will face hurdle around its psychological level of 12,000.
