Nagaraj Shetti of HDFC Securities said the expected range or consolidation movement is unlikely to damage the near term uptrend status of the market.
The market rebounded and closed higher on April 12, but snapped seven-week winning streak to end the week on a negative note amid caution as March quarter earnings season as well as polling for general elections started during the week.
The 30-share BSE Sensex gained 160.1 points to close at 38,767.11 and Nifty rose 46.75 points to 11,643.45 and formed small bullish candle on daily charts on April 12.
For the week, the Nifty lost 0.19 percent and formed 'Hanging Man' kind of formation on the weekly chart.
Price set up on daily scale suggests that supports are intact while the same on weekly scale suggests that hurdles are also visible at 11,761 which is restricting its upside momentum, experts said, adding the rangebound trade is expected to continue in coming truncated week.
"The near-term trend of Nifty is rangebound and one may expect this high-low range of 11,750-11,550 to continue for the next curtailed week. Further upside from here could encounter resistance at 11,710-11,750 in the next week," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
He said the expected range or consolidation movement is unlikely to damage the near-term uptrend status of the market.
Shabbir Kayyumi, Head of Technical & Derivative Research at Narnolia Financial Advisors said index if trades below strong psychological mark of 11,500, it will extend prices lower towards crucial support of 11,420 and below that towards monthly pivot point levels (11,360).
The market will remain shut on April 17 for Mahavir Jayanti and April 19 for Good Friday.
