The Bank Nifty has formed inside bar candlestick pattern on the weekly time frame, indicating directionless move and an intense fight between bulls and bears
The Nifty traded lower throughout the last week but managed to close above the crucial psychological levels of 11,000 on the back of strong short covering. The index formed a hammer candlestick pattern on the last trading session, indicating strong buying on lower levels. A doji pattern on the monthly timeframe, with long lower shadow, indicated positive momentum above August’s high placed at 11,181 mark.
Also, last week 5-day moving average (DMA) and 20 DMA crossovers have given a buy signal almost after two months of negative move. At the same time, the index has managed to close above its 5-week simple moving average (SMA) placed around 11,000 levels almost after 10 weeks of lower closing, which imply strength in the current up move.
Another bullish thesis is the breakout of recent emerging inverse head and shoulder pattern on the daily timeframe is expected above 11,150 marks, whereas target as per pattern comes near 11,480 levels.
The Nifty has concluded its CD leg of bearish cipher harmonic pattern near its price reversal zone at around 10,782 levels.
Its future rollover data on the settlement of August expiry is 68%, which is less than last month’s rollover data of 73% and it is also lower than three-month average data of 74%.
Though the market is trading in a tight range from the last few days, strength in chart patterns on the time frame and oversold oscillators suggest the probability of relief rally towards 11,400 marks; whereas lower side support lies around 10,800-10,700 levels.
The Bank Nifty has formed inside bar pattern on the weekly time frame, indicating directionless move and an intense fight between bulls and bears; however, breakout of last week’s high placed around 28277 followed by strong volumes will make the trend bullish.
