The short term trend of Nifty continues to be down and there is no confirmation of any significant bottom reversal at the lows.
By Nagaraj Shetti
After showing a sustainable upside bounce on Tuesday, Nifty witnessed sell on rise action on Wednesday and closed the day lower 88 points. A reasonable negative candle was formed on the daily chart that has partially engulfed previous bull candle. Technically, this pattern signal weak upside bounce in the market. This market action also indicates chances of Nifty revisiting the recent low of 17216 levels.
After a downside breakout of the trend line support at 17800 levels recently, the market failing to show any sustainable upside bounce so far signal a sell on rise opportunity in the market and any upside bounce from the lows could be considered as a pullback rally of a downtrend. Further weakness from here could test the key lower weekly support of 20 week EMA around 17200 levels as per weekly timeframe chart, before showing another round of upside bounce from the lows.
The short term trend of Nifty continues to be down and there is no confirmation of any significant bottom reversal at the lows. There is a possibility of further weakness towards the support of 17200 in the short term, before showing another round of minor upside bounce from the lows. A move below the support could open the next lows of around 16800 levels.
