Shabbir Kayyumi of Narnolia Financial Advisors said Nifty future's close above daily weighted average price (VWAP) indicates buyers remain active on the lower side.
Benchmark indices saw a good start with the Sensex gaining more than 160 points amid consolidation on July 15, but it was a bad day for broader markets as the Nifty Midcap index fell 0.8 percent.
The sectoral trend was mixed with Nifty IT index gaining nearly 3 percent and Pharma 1 percent but Bank and FMCG lost half a percent each.
The BSE Sensex gained 160.48 points to close at 38,896.71 while the Nifty 50 rallied 35.90 points to 11,588.40 forming a bearish candle (as the closing price is lower than opening) that resembles a Hammer kind of pattern on the daily scale.
"Nifty has a strong resistance near 11,650-zone. As long as the index trades below said levels we may see profit booking on every rise. Any close above 11,650-zone can lead to good short covering which in turn may push the index towards 11,700-11,750 zones," said Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities.
"The support for Nifty is near 11,530-11,480 zone. The Nifty Bank has given negative closing at 30,446 with loss of 156 points. Nifty Bank support is near 30,330-30,200 zone and resistance is near 30,600-30850 zone," he said.
According to Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, "This pattern indicates a rangebound movement in the market with positive bias. The Nifty currently shows a gradual up move amidst a choppy trend in the last five sessions. This strength of an upside bounce compared to previous sharp weakness (long range bear candle) of 5th and 8th July possibly signals a 'dead cat bounce' in the market."
Shetti said the upper area of 11,625-11,650 levels is going to be strong overhead resistance for the market ahead. Failure to sustain above 11,650 could result in a sharp reversal on the downside.
Shabbir Kayyumi, Head of Technical Research at Narnolia Financial Advisors said Nifty future's close above daily weighted average price (VWAP) indicated that buyers remained active on the lower side. "As long as Nifty is trading above 11,550 levels, short term move can extend towards the aborted top of 11,640 levels.
