Though Nifty closed on April 26 with a bullish candle with long lower shadow, volatility remained very high owing to the ongoing election. At the end of monthly F&O expiry, index managed to close above monthly pivot point resistance placed at 11,678 which signifies a continuation of the up move.

At the same time, Nifty is trading above its two major simple moving averages 100-DMA and 200-DMA. Nifty’s short-term moving average 20-SMA is placed around 11,655 mark and this moving average has acted as support during selling in the last two weeks.

The candlestick pattern suggests buyers are active on the lower side 11,600-11,580 levels. The indication from candlestick pattern is that the new trading range will be only above previous high 11,860 or below 11,580 levels. Regression line is placed around 11,680 levels and that remains a key midpoint for the near term market range, line of parity is placed around 11,540 marks.


Nifty future rollover data from April expiry is 81 percent which is higher than last month’s rollover data of 66 percent with higher closing in index level indicating long build up in index. Rollover is also more than the last 3 month’s average of 69 percent and 6 month’s average of 68 percent.

Bank Nifty

Bank Nifty traded in a tight range of 30,000 on the higher side and 29,500 on the lower side the entire last week. However, it could not close above 20-days SMA suggesting more strength is required to trade higher. Moreover, a fresh trend in Bank Nifty can emerge only beyond 30,200 on the higher side and below 29,500 on the lower side.
