Trade setup for Tuesday: Top 15 things to know before Opening Bell

"The overall chart pattern calls for caution for long positions and there is a possibility of another round of short-term weakness from the higher levels. The expected weakness could be a 'buy in dips' opportunity for the near term," says Nagaraj Shetti of HDFC Securities.

The benchmark indices hit new highs and also ended at record closing peak, as bulls retained their upper hand on Dalal Street for the seventh consecutive session on October 18. The rally was so strong that it took the BSE Sensex closer to 62,000 mark and the Nifty50 above 18,500 intraday, led by buying in Metals, Banking & Financials, IT and select FMCG stocks.

The BSE Sensex settled 459.64 points higher at 61,765.59, while the Nifty50 rallied 138.50 points to 18,477 but formed a negative candle on the daily charts.

"A small negative candle was formed at the swing highs with minor upper and lower shadows. Technically, this pattern signal a formation of 'Spinning Top' type candle pattern. More often, such spinning tops are associated with top reversals. Hence, trading long positions needs to be protected with appropriate stoploss," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.

He feels the short term trend of Nifty remains positive. "The overall chart pattern calls for caution for long positions and there is a possibility of another round of short term weakness from the higher levels. The expected weakness could be a buy in dips opportunity for the near term."

A sustainable move above 18,650 is likely to nullify this negative indication, and immediate support is placed at 18,350 levels, said Shetti.

Close

The broader markets also ended at record closing highs. The Nifty Midcap 100 index was up 1.17 percent and Smallcap 100 index rose 0.7 percent.
