Trade setup for Wednesday: Top 10 things you should know before Opening Bell

The trend would shift in favour of bears if the index breaks below 10,030. The index has to negate its formation of lower highs – lower lows to witness a bounce back move towards 10,250-10,300 levels.

The Nifty which started on a muted note failed to gain momentum and closed at the same level by closing making a ‘Doji’ candle on the daily candlestick charts on Tuesday ahead of Reserve Bank of India’s monetary policy outcome.

A 'Doji' is formed when the index opens and then closes approximately around the same level but remains volatile throughout the day, which is indicated by its long shadows on either side. The body will be insignificant which will appear like a plus sign on the charts.

The Nifty opened at 10,118.25 and closed virtually at the similar level of 10,118.35, thus forming a 'Doji' pattern on Tuesday. It rose to its intraday high of 10,147.95 which made up for the long upper shadow and an intraday low of 10,069.10 which made a long lower shadow.

The index still trades below its crucial short-term moving averages such as 5-DEMA, 10-DEMA, 20-DEMA, and 13-DEMA. Tracking the momentum, the 5-DEMA has moved below 50-DEMA which is a bearish sign.

A Doji is an indecisive pattern and investors should wait for Wednesday’s candle to give more insight into the trend. Formation of Doji, after five days of consolidation, is a positive sign and if the index stays above 10,100-10,150 in the next few sessions, there are chances of a relief rally.

The trend would shift in favour of bears if the index breaks below 10,030. The index has to negate its formation of lower highs–lower lows to witness a bounce back move towards 10,250-10,300 levels.

“The Nifty is poised at a very critical juncture. On an intraday basis we nudged the level of 10,094 which was the immediate low for this market and hence a crucial support level,” Manish Hathiramani, proprietary trader & technical analyst, told Moneycontrol.

“The market was quick to bounce off that point but I do not reckon we are out of the woods yet. It is imperative that this market holds the levels of 10,050, otherwise we can witness a sharp southward movement towards the levels of 9,950 and 9,850,” he said.

India VIX moved up by 1.01 percent at 15. Rising volatility is providing grip to the bears and showing short-term concern for long positions.
