The Nifty 50 which started with a gap down opening on Friday morning recouped some of its losses and closed significantly higher, making a bullish candle on intraday charts. However, on weekly basis, it has formed a small bearish candle.

The index closed below its crucial support placed around 10,500 but above its crucial 100-day exponential moving average (DEMA) placed at 10,400 levels.

The positive takeaway from this week is the fact that the Indian market has manages to close significantly higher than its opening level which suggests accumulation at lower levels.

The Nifty which opened at 10,416, slipped to an intraday low of 10,398. It bounced back after hitting its 100-DMA to close the week 121 points lower at 10,454.

“Indian bourses remained vulnerable to bouts of volatility emanating from global financial markets as another day has ended with a huge gap down. It has signed off the week with a small bearish candle formation on the charts,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, told Moneycontrol.

“These kind of gap down openings are just suggesting fear on the part of traders, but post such an opening the market is not witnessing follow through selling at least for that day. This has been the phenomena for almost three sessions which recently witnessed gap down openings. This kind of behaviour is only pointing towards some accumulation taking place at intraday lows,” he said.

Mohammad added that for any reason if the recent low of 10,276 is breached then the correction may extend up to 10,040 levels. Contrary to this, a close above 10,637 shall be considered as an initial sign of strength in the market.
