One may expect Nifty to move towards the new all-time high of 12,963 levels by next week, said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities

November 23, 2020 / 07:13 AM IST

The market recouped half of previous day's losses and closed with a 0.7 percent gains on November 20, aided by banking and financials, FMCG, and IT stocks.

The BSE Sensex climbed 282.29 points to 43,882.25, while the Nifty50 rose 87.30 points to 12,859 amid consolidation and formed a small bodied bullish candle which resembles Hammer kind of pattern on the daily charts.

"The Nifty on the daily chart sustained above the immediate short term support of 10-day EMA at 12,680 levels. This action could mean that the short term uptrend status remains intact after a small downward correction and Nifty is expected to bounce up towards new all-time highs," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, told Moneycontrol.

During the week, Nifty50 gained 0.6 percent, but saw bearish candle formation on the weekly scale as closing was lower than opening levels.

"Nifty on the weekly chart formed a small negative candle with minor lower shadow. This pattern signal a breather type formation at the new highs, after a sharp upmove of the previous couple of weeks. Hence, this could also mean a lack of selling enthusiasm in the market post sharp upmove/at all-time highs," Shetti said.


"One may expect Nifty to move towards the new all-time high of 12,963 levels by next week. A decisive/sustainable move above 13,000 levels could open next upside targets of 13,500-13,600 in the near term. Immediate supports are seen at 12,680-12,730 levels," he added.

The overall market breadth continued to be positive and broad market indices like Midcap and Smallcap segments have closed on a decent gains of around 0.86 percent and 1.15 percent, respectively on November 20.
