Rajesh Palviya advised buying on dips as the Nifty continues to remain in an uptrend in the medium term.
The market continued to consolidate its gains for the third consecutive week and closed on a flat note due to lack of strong global and domestic cues.
The BSE Sensex gained 2.72 points to close at 40,359.41 though touched a record high of 40,816.38 during the week that ended on November 22.
The Nifty50 failed to hold on to the psychological 12,000 level, and rose 18.95 points to end at 11,914.40. It formed a Doji candlestick pattern for the third consecutive week, indicating indecisiveness amongst market participants regarding the direction.
Experts expect volatility to continue in coming week as well, given the lack of major news and the expiry of November futures and options contracts on November 28.
"The chart pattern suggests that if Nifty crosses and sustains above 12,035 level, it would witness fresh buying action that would lead the index towards 12,100-12,150 levels, while if index breaks below 11,800 level it would witness selling which would take the index towards 11,700-11,620," Rajesh Palviya, DGM - Research ( Head Technical & Derivatives Research) at Axis Securities told Moneycontrol.
Nifty is trading above its 20, 50, 100 and 200 day SMAs, which are important short term moving average that indicate a positive bias in the short term, he said. He expects the Nifty to trade in the range of 12,100-11,750 with mixed bias in the coming week.
Palviya advised buying on dips as the Nifty continues to remain in an uptrend in the medium term.
