According to Pivot charts, the key support level is placed at 10,481.07, followed by 10,438.13. If the index starts moving upwards, key resistance levels to watch out are 10,562.87 and then 10,601.73.
After a blockbuster rally last week, the Indian market consolidated in a narrow range on November 5. The Nifty50 slipped below its crucial support placed at 10550 to form a 'Hanging Man' kind of pattern on the daily charts.
A Hanging Man is a bearish reversal candlestick pattern which is usually formed at the end of an uptrend or at the top. In a perfect 'Hanging Man' pattern either there will be a small upper shadow or no upper shadow at all, a small body and long lower shadow.
The Nifty50, which opened at 10,558.75, rose marginally to hit its intraday high of 10,558.80 which resulted in no upper shadow for the index. The bears' grip on D-Street was from the start and pushed the index below 10,500 in intraday trade.
However, bulls managed to push the index back above 10,500 levels towards the closing which is a positive sign. The Nifty50 finally closed 29 points down at 10,524.
Crucial support for the index is placed at 10,440 and below that at 10,200 levels. On the upside, Nifty50 is likely to face stiff resistance at 10,600-10,700 levels, suggest experts.
India VIX moved up by 6.87 per cent at 19.48 levels. VIX has to go down below 17-16 zones to confirm the short-term reversal and a decent bounce back after the sharp cut of last two months.
