- Nifty above 17800 may head to 18300, Bank Nifty to hit 38800; Airtel, HCL Tech, Dabur look strong on charts
- Buy these two stocks for gains; Nifty resistance at 17800–17850, Bank Nifty likely to outperform
- Share Market LIVE: Sensex gives up gains, turns red again, Nifty below 17,600; Tata Steel down 6%
The Nifty is range-bound between 17250 and 17450. This morning we attempted to get past 17450 but resisted around that level. Until we do not get past either value of the index, we will be trading in a sluggish manner. Since the overall trend is positive, a good trading strategy would be to buy this market on dips.

Despite a bullish opening, domestic indices closed flat with a positive bias amid mixed sentiments among global peers. India’s retail inflation softened to 5.3% in August, staying within RBI’s comfort zone which was led by lower food inflation. However, the wholesale price inflation accelerated to 11.39% snapping the two-month easing trend owing to non-food articles. Global markets traded cautiously ahead of the US consumer price index to be released today.

On the technical front, the Index has given a breakout of the falling trend line and taken support from the extended trendline, which suggests upside movement in the counter. On an Hourly Chart, the Index has taken support from 21 HMA and sustained above the same suggested strength for the upside. Momentum indicators RSI & Stochastic are supporting the positive trend in the index. At present, the psychological level of 17500 could be a resistance while on the downside, 17250 may act as support for the index.

Index opened a day with good gap but unable to sustain on highs and saw profit booking & closed a day at 17380 with minimal gains. Index again took hurdle from its previous swing high and forming sort of double top pattern on lower time frames which will be active below 17250 zone, for further upside index needs to sustain above 17450 zone otherwise we may see more profit booking & we may head towards immediate support zone of 17300-17250 zone.

The day quite clearly belonged to the Nifty Media index which has been underperforming other sectoral indices. The huge upmove today in ZEEL fired up the Media index as gains seen in other stocks looked pale in comparison. The broader markets witnessed profit booking today in stocks which have seen a big run up in recent times.
