Most technical experts are of the view that it is critical for the index to close above 10620 levels for the bulls to regain control while on the downside crucial support for the index is placed at 10500 levels.
The Nifty saw week of consolidation as it remained in a narrow range of 142 points and ended with a Hanging Man kind of formation.
The index, which opened with a small gap on the upside in morning trade on November 9, failed to hold on to gains and turned negative making the same pattern on daily charts.
A Hanging Man is a bearish reversal candlestick pattern, which is usually formed at the end of an uptrend or at the top (more than 600-point rally from its recent low of 10,004 recorded on October 26).
Most technical experts are of the view that it is critical for the index to close above the 10,620 level for the bulls to regain control, while on the downside crucial support for the index is placed at the 10,500 level.
"This kind of narrow ranges may eventually lead to a spurt in either of the directions," Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research and Trading Advisory, Chartviewindia.in told Moneycontrol.
Further, experts such as Shabbir Kayyumi of Narnolia Financial Advisors believe that the "Parabolic SAR" remains in sell mode and suggests buying only if prices cross its SAR level, which is currently around 10,825. So, medium-term bullishness should be considered only above this level.
For the uninitiated, parabolic SAR is a technical indicator used to determine the price direction of an asset, as well draw attention to when the price direction is changing, according to Investopedia.
"Options data indicates an immediate trading range between 10,700 and 10,450 marks. Bulls should get cautious if Nifty falls below 10450 followed by 10,380 levels," Kayyumi further wrote in his column.
