According to pivot charts, Nifty's key support level is placed at 10,617.73, followed by 10,579.27. If the index starts moving upwards, key resistance levels to watch out for are 10,717.73 and then 10,779.27.
The market closed sharply lower with the Sensex falling 300 points on November 20 as the Reserve Bank of India's decision to boost lending failed to impress investors. Weak global cues and correction in technology stocks on rupee recovery also hit market sentiment.
The index closed way below its 200-day moving average, down 107.20 points at 10,656.20 and formed 'Bearish Belt Hold' kind of pattern on the daily charts.
A 'Bearish Belt Hold' pattern is formed when the opening price becomes the highest point of the trading day (intraday high) and the index declines throughout the trading day making up for the large body. The candle will either have a small or no upper shadow and a small lower shadow.
"The key moving average that was acting as a resistance for the last few sessions is now acting as a support as per the principle of role reversal. The hourly chart reveals that the selling pressure abated as the Nifty approached the junction of 40 hour exponential moving average & the hourly lower Bollinger Band," Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Senior Technical Analyst, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas said.
He further said overall 10,650-10,630 is a crucial support zone for the index where multiple parameters are lying to offer support. Thus the Nifty seems to be on a spring board, which has a potential to throw the index higher, he added.
From trading perspective, one can take a cautiously bullish stance for the near term targets of 10,821 & 10950, according to him. "An intermediate hurdle is placed at 10,775."
