The upside momentum continued in the market for the third consecutive sessions on Wednesday and Nifty closed the day with handsome gains of around 120 points. A reasonable long bull candle was formed on the daily chart with minor upper and lower shadow. Technically this pattern indicates a continuation of an uptrend in the market and the formation of upper and lower shadow’s signal emergence of volatility at the highs. At the same time, the formation of lower shadows of the last two session’s bull candle indicates a buy on intraday dips action in the market. However, having moved up sharply in the last four sessions, there is a possibility of consolidation or minor downward correction from the highs. The overall market breadth seems to have tired on Wednesday after a sharp run up of the last few sessions. The broad market indices have started to consolidate at higher levels. The nullifying of a bearish pattern recently could mean sharp trend reversal on the upside and any dips from here could be a buying opportunity.

The market continued with upside momentum on Wednesday, but the pace of the market seems to have reduced and the volatility has started to occur at higher levels.

Immediate support is placed at 17760 and the near term upside target to be watched at 18200 levels.
