The index is expected to remain tight on a rangebound level with 11,110 on upside which will also act as immediate resistance and 10,950 on the downside.
Despite witnessing a minor setback on the backdrop of F&O expiry during the last trading session, the Nifty index surpassed a crucial psychological 11,000 level in last week’s trade on a closing basis.
After successively closing in a positive trajectory for the last six straight days, the index managed to hit the upper band on its long-term price channel, signaling positive cues on the medium term.
However, weak cues and selling pressure from the select-sector turned a caution sentiment to close 16 points down at 11,069 levels.
Although the bullish stance remained intact on its long-term price chart, the index formed a bearish ‘hanging man’ kind of pattern on the daily chart indicating a restraint trade at the current level.
Further, the secondary momentum indicator signed at overbought zone with RSI at 75 levels which is expected to keep index under pressure on the backdrop of profit-booking.
However, the breakout from its upper band on the long-term price chart is expected to keep the index on uptrend trajectory in the medium term.
With the important event coming this week, the Union Budget 2018 coupled with a sharp rise in crude oil price and weak global cues, the index is expected to witness sideways direction with a negative bias on a short-term basis.
The index is expected to remain tight on a rangebound level with 11,110 on upside which will also act as immediate resistance and 10,950 on the downside. It will be advisable to stay caution and maintain strict stop-loss on a long position.
