Technical View

The index formed a bullish candle on the daily charts

The index has been respecting to its rising support trend lines and declines are being bought to form the higher market base.

The Nifty has to continue to hold above 10700 zones to extend its move towards 11000 then 11200 levels while key support exists at 10650 then 10550 levels, suggest experts.

India VIX fell down by 4.55% at 24.91 levels. Lower volatility suggests an overall bullish stance with buy on decline strategy could continue.
