Within the earlier week’s technical observe, there was a categorical point out of the opportunity of the NIFTY Bank Index (Banknifty) enjoying a catch-up given its relative underperformance.
This index closed at a brand new excessive and the Nifty closed at its recent 52-week high whereas being a whisker away from the lifetime excessive level of 18,604. Within the four-day buying and selling week, the index moved in a 392.90-point vary earlier than closing with a internet achieve of 232.55 factors (+1.28%).
From a technical perspective, two distinct eventualities would possibly unfold over the approaching week. First, headline index NIFTY50, which is now inside a putting distance of its lifetime excessive level of 18,604, could begin seeing some resistance because it approaches the upper ranges.
Secondly, there are sturdy prospects for the Bank Nifty to stage a breakout if it may well hold its head above 42,000 ranges. If this doesn’t occur, we may even see each indices consolidate at larger ranges. In any case, if the up transfer is prolonged, it might be wiser to give attention to defending earnings at larger ranges because the Nifty would method its key resistance level within the type of the earlier lifetime excessive stage.
Volatility continued to slip; India VIX got here off by one other 7.98% to 14.40; this is without doubt one of the lowest ranges seen this yr. The approaching week is prone to see a steady begin; the degrees of 18,400 and 18,590 are prone to act as potential resistance factors. The helps are available at 18,000 and 17,880 ranges.
The weekly RSI is 64.21; it has marked a brand new 14-period excessive, which is bullish. It stays ‘impartial’ and doesn’t present any divergence towards the worth. The weekly MACD is bullish and stays above the Sign Line. A candle with a protracted decrease shadow has emerged on the charts. The decrease shadow just isn’t lengthy sufficient to be known as a classical “hanging man” but it surely positively warrants some warning; extra so when it appeared following a steep up-move within the markets.
The NIFTY stays inside putting distance from the lifetime excessive level of 18,604. The worldwide markets are largely steady; this may occasionally assist the index inch larger. Nonetheless, there are prospects that the Nifty begins going through resistance because it travels in direction of its earlier excessive level. Whereas Banknifty is clearly stronger in relative phrases to Nifty and will comparatively outperform, it might be a prudent method to focus extra on defending earnings at larger ranges till Nifty itself achieves a breakout from the earlier excessive.
It might be smart to not chase the ultimate up-move towards the lifetime excessive of Nifty; as an alternative, it might be extra rewarding if one focuses on lowering the exposures, defending the earnings, and taking some cash off the desk.
The markets are inherently buoyant; there are fewer prospects of any corrective transfer occurring. Nonetheless, on the identical time, prospects of consolidation at larger ranges can’t be dominated out. A cautiously constructive outlook is suggested for the approaching week.
