VIX continues to consolidate at elevated levels which is a cause of concern. VIX needs to move below 17 for market to see sustainable up move, says Ashish Chaturmohta of Sanctum Wealth Management
Equity markets across the world rallied on trade truce between the US and China. The domestic markets also opened in positive but failed to sustain above 10,900 as GDP and fiscal deficit numbers weighed on the market.
The Nifty finally settled at 10,884 on December 3, marginally higher by 0.06 percent for the day. Market breadth on NSE was slightly in favour of advances.
Broader market indices BSE Midcap and Smallcap were up 0.5 percent each for the day. The index filled falling gap area (10,755-10,847) and retraced 50 percent of the entire fall (11,760-10,005). But after six consecutive sessions of gains, the last couple of candlesticks on daily chart suggests momentum is waning and market could pause the rally.
Thus, if the index starts to trade below 10,835 then expect a test of the 200-day moving average which comes around 10,745. Below this, the next support is seen at 10,650.
On the upside, if it sustains above 10,940, expect a rally towards 11,090 which is 61.8 percent retracement of the current fall.
