Nifty technical view: The broader range movement for the Nifty is intact and the low of 17800-17850 is expected to offer support in the next few sessions, an analyst said. “Any weakness below 17800 could retest the last swing low of 17600 levels. As long as the minor positive chart pattern of higher tops and bottoms is intact, there is a hope of upside bounce from the lows,” Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, said.
