Any decisive move above the stiff resistance 10,985 will push Nifty higher towards previous swing high (11,111)
Nifty started the week with a bullish note and gained almost 300 points till February 7, however, some profit booking took place after RBI policy meet outcome. Nifty has faced resistance at the key Fibonacci retracement level of 61.8 percent for the prior large fall. But short-term technical set up remains bullish.
Recently, the index has got a fresh buy signal in GMMA (Guppy Multiple Moving Average) on daily timeframe indicating bullish bias. It is already in buy mode on weekly and monthly time frames. Higher high and higher low formation on weekly as well as monthly time frames suggest Nifty is trading with positive bias in the higher time frame.
Volatility index VIX has closed below 16. The market is trading above its three major simple moving averages 20-DMA, 50-DMA and 200-DMA that are placed between 10,840-10,860, suggesting strong support zone on the lower side. A normal retracement towards this strong support zone of moving averages can be used as a buying opportunity.
Moreover, any decisive move above the stiff resistance 10,985 will push it higher towards previous swing high (11,111). A close below the strong support line of polarity around 10,850 can change the current sentiment.
In case of Bank Nifty, range breakout is expected only above 27,585, which will push prices higher towards 27,900. The immediate trading range of 27,900-26,900 remains intact.
