It is a bearish engulfing candle in the day-chart for NIFTY. BNF and FIN NIFTY are just below major levels.
It was the dividend date for HDFC twins and the price saw adjustments. The discount we have been seeing in BNF futures reduced yesterday. There is a 20 points discount still and there is no doubt that there is shorting.
Discount and shorting would have led the traders to think in two ways: Short and follow the crowd or trade against them for a short covering. The short players won the game yesterday.
Do you think they will get a follow-up on the downside or there will be a buy-on-dip as the long-term trend is bullish?
I will watch 18,225 on the downside in NIFTY. 18,370 can be watched on the upside.
