"We reiterate our consolidation view on Nifty and suggest focusing more on stock selection and position management," said Ajit Mishra, Vice President - Research, Religare Broking.
Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research and Trading Advisory, Chartviewindia.in said that in the next session, if the Nifty slips below 11,891, then initially it should head towards the 11,802-mark, and a breach of this shall further accelerate selling pressure with ideal targets placed around 11,700.
Nifty remained volatile throughout the week in a wider trading range of 11,800-12,000 and faced stiff resistance at 12,000-mark which has been acting as a crucial resistance level.
"The short-term trend for Nifty continues to be rangebound with a slight negative bias. We expect a soft start on Monday with some rangebound trade. As long as Nifty trades below 12,050 levels, we expect some consolidation in the range of 11,800-12,000 zone," said Nilesh Jain, derivatives and technical analyst at Anand Rathi.
