Nifty closed at 14823 with a gain of 192 points on a weekly basis. On the weekly chart index has formed a bullish candle and remained restricted within previous week’s High-Low range indicating lack of strength on either side. Since past couple of months index is consolidating within broad range of 15000- 14200 levels representing sideways trend.

The chart pattern suggests that if Nifty crosses and sustains above 14900 levels it would witness buying which would lead the index towards 15000-15250 levels. Important Support for the week is around 14400-14200. Nifty is trading above 20 and 50 day SMA’s which are important short term moving average, indicating positive bias in the short term. Nifty continues to remain in an uptrend in the medium term, so buying on dips continues to be our preferred strategy. For the week, we expect Nifty to trade in the range of 15200-14600 with a positive bias.

The weekly strength indicator RSI is moving downwards and is quoting below its reference line indicating negative bias. However momentum oscillator Stochastic has turned positive from the oversold zone indicating a possible consolidation or an up-move in the near term
