The Nifty on Friday ended 0.01 percent lower at 10,767.65. It opened the session on a weaker note and found support around 10,700 levels (day’s low was 10,709.05), before ending the session with a Hammer candle. It continues to oscillate in a narrowing price range.
Last week, it ended 0.67 percent higher up with a Dragonfly Doji candle. This candle pattern on the weekly chart implies accumulation on dips. Also, double bottom formation around 10,550 levels is clearly visible.
The broader chart pattern suggests the benchmark index is likely to challenge its upside resistance placed around 10,780 and 10,820 levels. Immediate critical support is placed around 10,700 levels. 30-day exponential moving average (EMA) on the daily chart is placed around 10,630, which may act as the second critical support.
On the Nifty hourly chart, the sharp gap-down opening found support around 10,700 levels. It reverted back, filling up that gap. At present, it is trading well above all crucial moving averages. Hence, a buy-on-dips strategy is advised.
Nifty patterns on multiple timeframes show it finished off the last session of the week with a Hammer candle, which points towards continuation of the uptrend. Broader chart patterns suggest the benchmark index is likely to challenge higher resistances placed around 10,780 and 10,840.
