Market opened on a subdued note last week and continued with its stellar rally Tuesday onward after election results are declared. Appearance of Bullish engulfing candle in Nifty and long bull candle near strong Kagi monthly support of 10,386 suggest a significant bottom has been made by the market on election result day.

Weekly RSI is trading near 50 almost from last three weeks, indicating sideways to positive momentum. At the same time, Nifty VIX closed lower around 15.16 for the first time since October 2018 where we had seen volatility breakout. This indicates subdued volatility in coming sessions with no major price movement.


Although Nifty is trading above its major short-term moving averages, it has to surpass and decisively trade above 50 percent Fibonacci retracement level of swing high 11,760 & swing low 10,003 which is around 10,882 to extend its up move. On the contrary, Nifty has a strong support of trend line and 200 DMA around 10,750, whereas a fall below these levels can extend index towards 50 DMA (10550).

In terms of open interest data, highest Open Interest (OI) in Put is seen around 10,000 strikes followed by 10,500 strikes.

Bank Nifty

Banking index has formed double doji pattern on daily time frame in last two trading sessions, it is indecisive in nature; however lower level of doji is 26,730 & higher level is 26,950 and breaching of these levels will give a sharp movement in that direction. Nevertheless short term & mid-term trend is positive and immediate resistance is around 27,200 & support around 26,200 levels.
