After showing gradual upside bounce in the last couple of sessions, Nifty witnessed extreme volatility by moving into large intraday swing highs and lows on the day of Union Budget 2023 on Wednesday and finally settled with a loss of 45 points.
A long bear candle was formed on the daily chart with long upper and lower shadow.
Technically, this pattern indicates high volatility in the market. The formation of long lower shadows in the last four daily candles signal presence of strong support at 17,400-17,300 levels and the market could once again show upside bounce in the coming sessions. The important support of 200-day EMA was into scene on Wednesday after a downside violation at 17550 levels. This is a positive indication.
The short-term trend of Nifty is highly volatile. Having moved up smartly from the lows in the last few occasions, there is a possibility of Nifty retesting the crucial resistance of 17,800 levels in the near term. Further sustainable upside could occur only above this hurdle.
