Trade Setup for Thursday: Top 10 things you should know

Here are top 10 data points to help you spot profitable trade.

The Nifty closed below its 20-days exponential moving average (DEMA) at 9,382 and 13-DEMA placed at 9,404 on Wednesday weighed down by geopolitical concerns, FOMC minutes as well as Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) new NPA ordinance.

The index made a bearish candle after a 'bearish belt hold' kind of formation in the previous trading session which signifies caution for bulls.

The index slipped below its crucial support level of 9,400 for the second day in a row and a close below 9,341 could further exert selling pressure.


However, there could be a small pullback considering Thursday being the expiry day for May expiry. The expiry is likely to happen in the range of 9,300-9,400, derivative data suggests.
