Investors are advised to remain cautious and watch out for two levels: 10,770 on the upside and 10,550 on the down.
The Nifty closed last week with a positive bias, but below its crucial level of 10,700, which suggest that bears are not ready to give up yet. The index is likely to consolidate in a range in June series as we head towards two crucial events: Monetary Policy Committee and US Federal Reserve policy meetings.
Investors are advised to remain cautious and watch out for two levels: 10,770 on the upside and 10,550 on the down. A breach of either could lead to a breakout or a breakdown. Until then, it is best if investors can remain stock-specific.The index has made an indecisive pattern - Spinning Top - on the weekly chart and registered a Doji kind of formation on the monthly chart.
Since the past seven weeks, the Nifty has been consolidating between 10,820 and 10,500 levels, representing a short to medium term sideways trend.
“Any decisive break on either side will provide direction to the market. The chart pattern suggests that if the Nifty crosses and sustains above 10,770 levels, then it would witness buying interest which would lead the index towards 10,820-10,900 levels,” Rajesh Palviya, Head-Technical & Derivative Research, Axis Securities, said.
If it breaks below 10,640 levels, he sees the index heading towards 10,550-10,500 levels. “For the week, we expect the Nifty to trade in the range of 10,820-10,550 with a mixed bias.”
