Near-term oscillators continued to be in ‘sell’ mode, but the index could extend its rise towards the 12,300-12,400 range on back of broad buying interest in the market. To maintain the current bullish tempo the index has to stay above 12,170

06:19 PM

A close below 12,225 next week can set the tone for a sharper correction on the downside. Sustainability of the up-move of last two sessions remains doubtful, even as the current pullback swing has a logical target placed in 12,290-360 range. Therefore, it looks prudent for traders to book profit as Nifty heads closer to the 12,300 level

On the weekly scale, the index formed a Bearish Engulfing-type pattern at the new high of 12,430. This along with a long lower shadow on the weekly candle could raise concern over the negative pattern confirmation

- Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities

06:17 PM

Nifty formed a bullish candle on the daily chart and a Bearish Engulfing Pattern on the weekly chart, which implied supplies at higher levels. At the same time, every decline got being bought into. Momentum oscillator RSI took support around its recent swing lows in the 44 – 46 zone and turned northward. Going forward, if Nifty holds above 12,150 level, then an up-move towards 12,300 and 12,350 levels cannot be ruled out. However, major support remains intact at 12,100 and 12,050 levels

The market continued its upward momentum despite unsupportive global cues. We reiterate our cautious view given the stretched valuation and muted start to the earnings season. The expectations are high from Budget, as market participants are pinning hopes on additional measures from the government to revive the economy. This is likely to drive momentum in the market in the coming sessions. Further, earnings announcements from corporates would also induce stock-specific volatility

04:09 PM

Index heavyweights consolidated last week due to marginally lower-than-expected results for IT, bank and infra sectors. Midcaps and smallcaps extended their rally on expectations of revival in growth and liquidity from institutional investors. In anticipation of a good Budget & Q3 results, the pre-Budget rally has been solid. For this rally to maintain, a lot will depend on the outcome of Budget and final Q3 earnings trajectory. Market is turning a bit cautious before the big event
