The index has to hold above 27,150 to extend move toward 27,500. Support exists at 27000-26850 zones, suggest experts.
The Nifty 50 which reclaimed its crucial resistance level of 11,100 in intraday trade failed to hold on gains as traders preferred to book profits at higher levels. The index closed around the same levels that it opened making a ‘Doji’ kind of candle on the daily charts.
A 'Doji' is formed when the index opens and then closes approximately around the same level. However, it remains volatile throughout the trading day which is indicated by its long shadow on either side. The candle appears like a cross or a plus sign.
A Doji usually means indecisiveness among the bulls as well as bears. However, experts feel as long as Nifty 50 stays above 10,987, bulls have nothing to worry. Short term traders can look to book profits below 11,043.
The Nifty 50 opened at 11,070 and rose to an intraday high of 11,118 but then witnessed selling pressure at higher levels pushing the index below 11,100. The index hit an intraday low of 11,043 before closing the day at 11,069, up 6.95 points.
The Bank Nifty traded in a range from 27,350 to 27,600 zones as buying interest was seen at lower levels while selling pressure at higher zones. It formed a bearish candle with the long upper shadow which indicates that follow up is missing at higher zones.
The index has to continue to hold above 27,150 zones to extend its move towards 27,500 then 27,750 zones while on the downside support exists at 27,000-26,850 zones, suggest experts.
