After showing weakness from all-time highs on Tuesday, Nifty witnessed follow-through declines on Wednesday and closed the day lower by 152 points. A long bear candle was formed on the daily chart, which indicate sharp reversal in the market. The recent swing high of 18604 could now be considered as a short term top formation for the Nifty.
In the last two months, the market has been in a strong up trended move and the downward corrections in between was smaller and is limited up to 2-3 sessions. As per this pattern, the two sessions of weakness is already over from the highs and there is a possibility of an upside bounce emerging from the lows in the next 1-2 sessions.
The correlation of Nifty and 10 day EMA is intact as per daily timeframe chart. The last two session’s downward correction from the highs have narrowed the gap between Nifty and this moving average. As happened in the past for several times, the Nifty could slide down to the support of 10d EMA (currently at 18150) in the next 1-2 sessions before showing any sustainable upside bounce.
The short term trend of Nifty continues to be negative and there is a possibility of some more weakness in the next 1-2 sessions before showing any convincing upside bounce from the lows. Important lower support is placed around 18150-18100 levels.
