According to Pivot charts, the key support level is placed at 10,498.3, followed by 10,456.8. If the index starts to move higher, key resistance levels to watch out are 10,568.4 and 10,597.
After a 3 percent drop in the previous week, bulls managed to regain control of D-Street on Monday with Nifty50 rising above 10,500. The index formed a small bullish candle on the daily candlestick charts which suggest that the rally could extend towards 10,700.
Investors are advised to stay cautious but technical indicators are suggesting that the pullback move could extend by another couple of trading sessions. The index closed below its key short-term moving averages such as 50-days exponential moving average (DEMA), and 5-DEMA.
The Nifty50 which opened at 10,518.20 rose to an intraday high of 10,555.50. It slipped marginally to hit an intraday low of 10,485.40 before closing 84 points higher at 10,539.75.
“Albeit Nifty50 registered a small bullish candle it appears to be on a pullback mode after testing its 100-Days Moving average (DMA) in the preceding two trading sessions of last week,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, Chartviewindia.in told Moneycontrol.
“As momentum oscillators are slowly turning into the positive zone thereby generating buy signals on lower time frame charts ideally this rally should get extended for a couple of trading sessions unless there is going to be a shift of sentiment in global markets once again on the negative side,” he said.
Momentum in the index shall get accelerated once it sustains above 10,636 levels. In such a scenario it should test the gap zone of 10,702 – 10,736 registered on 5th February but bigger rally should be expected only on a close above 10,736. For time being, Mohammad advises traders to put a stop below 10398 levels on a closing basis and ride this up move.
