Though the global market setup is not very strong, technical setup for Indian markets indicates a continuation of the bullish trend
Nifty continued its upward journey for the second day in the row to end with gains of 52 points at 11,923 on June 10. Moreover, it managed to conquer 5-day exponential moving average (EMA), placed at 11,916. Nifty is currently trading above its 20, 50, 100 and 200-DMA, indicating that the primary trend is bullish.
The index has formed higher tops and higher bottoms on the daily and weekly charts. It formed a ‘Cup and Handle’ pattern on the weekly charts that indicates a continuation of an uptrend.
A 38.2 percent retracement of the 995 point rally from 11,108 to 12,103 comes in at 11,723. Now, a close below this is required for the trend to turn bearish.
Long term target for the Nifty is seen at 12,430, which happens to be 138.2 percent Fibonacci retracement of the entire swing seen from 11,760 (Aug 2018 top) to 10,004(Oct 2018 bottom). As far as support is concerned, it is placed around 11,723 for the Nifty.
Though the global market setup is not very strong, technical setup for Indian markets indicates a continuation of the bullish trend. Traders should remain long on Nifty with the trailing stop loss of 11,723. The next target for the Nifty is seen around 12,100 and 12,430.
