Dalal Street Week Ahead: Nifty Analysis For January Final Week



NIFTY opened the week with a small gap-up at 18,019. Monday was a down-trending day. Support was taken near 17,850 and the index rallied for the next two days. Expiry day saw a gap-down opening as there was global negativity and the index had a choppy day. Nifty fell on Friday to close the week at 18,028, up by 71 points or 0.4%.

BANK NIFTY opened with a gap-up at 42,625 and moved down on Monday. The index took support at 41,850 on Tuesday and moved higher. However, 42,500 acted as a strong resistance and the expiry was in a tight range. The index outperformed and consolidated on Friday. BNF ended the day at 42,507, up by 135 points or 0.3%.

IT moved up by 2%.

Foreign Institutional Investors net-sold shares worth Rs 2,500 crores last week.

Domestic Institutional Investors net-bought shares worth Rs 3,500 crores.

Consolidation continues in our market. The week candle is a doji. The previous candle also was a doji. If you look at BNF, the doji has moderate bullishness though it can be ignored.

Looking at the global markets, the west saw weakness whereas the Asian markets closed in the green. However, NASDAQ moved higher.Our IT index might have got inspired from this up-move.
