Nifty started the previous week on a flat note but continued its positive momentum to end the week on a strong note. Nifty closed at 15670 with a gain of 235 points on a weekly basis. On the weekly chart the index has formed a long bullish candle forming higher High-low compared to previous week and has closed above previous week’s high indicating positive bias. On the weekly chart, the index has observed a “Rounding Bottom” breakout indicating resumption of the earlier up trend.

The chart pattern suggests that if Nifty crosses and sustains above 15800 level it would witness buying which would lead the index towards 15950-16100 levels. However if the index breaks below 15600 level it would witness selling which would take the index towards 15450-15350. Nifty is trading above 20 and 50 day SMAs which are important short term moving averages, 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 15900-15500 with a positive bias.

The weekly strength indicator RSI and momentum oscillator Stochastic have both turned positive and are above their respective reference lines indicating positive bias.
