The Nifty which started the week ended April 6 on a muted note managed to recoup losses and closed with gains of just six points but above its crucial psychological support level of 10,300 on Friday. It formed a Doji type pattern on the daily chart and a bullish candle on the weekly chart.

The index, which made a bullish Marubozu candle on the daily chart on Thursday, consolidated in a narrow range on Friday and made an indecisive candlestick pattern on the daily chart.

A 'Doji' is formed when the index opens and then closes approximately around the same level but remains volatile throughout the day as indicated by its long shadow on either side. It appears like a cross or a plus sign.

The Nifty index opened at 10,322 and rose to an intra-day high of 10,350 which is close to its 50-DEMA. It slipped to an intra-day low of 10,290 before closing the day six points higher at 10,331.

Analysts advise investors to remain long on the index with a stop loss below 10,227 levels, which is also its crucial support. On the higher side, Nifty is likely to face stiff resistance around 10,460 levels.

“It was a day of consolidation on the bourses as Nifty witnessed a listless trading session, with an extremely rangebound move of 60 points, before signing off the day with a Doji kind of indecisive formation,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, told Moneycontrol.

“However, on the weekly charts, a decent bullish candle was registered for the second consecutive week suggesting that momentum is slowly shifting in favour of bulls. Once Nifty registers a firm close above 10,350 levels, where its 50-day EMA levels is placed, then it can act as some sort of confirmation for a bigger upmove in the near-term, may be towards 10,650 levels,” he said.

Mohammad said any dip should be used as an opportunity to go long for an initial target of 10,460 and a bigger swing towards 10,650 can’t be ruled out. "On the downside, 10,227 should be assumed as critical support below which bullish momentum shall fade away."

India VIX remains flat at 14.74. However, it needs to hold below 13.50-13 zones for short-term stability in the market.
