Hope you remember the title of yesterday’s Pre Market Analysis; ‘Can Nifty fight global negativity?’ Our market has fought effectively and had a big rally, crossing all the major levels. The volume towards the close was big.
Also, the option sellers who had a calm flat day on Wednesday were beaten towards the close as the rally was too big for an option seller to manage unless there was an early exit made on caution.
The day-candle looks rather strong with a small lower wick and a huge body, engulfing the previous candles. BNF also has formed a bullish engulfing candle.
Though we are witnessing big rallies, I do not know how long this can sustain as the moves we are getting in the market are steep and this makes the situation volatile and the pullbacks can be steep as well. A close above 18,450 would be needed for instilling confidence in the bulls.
I will watch 18,070 on the downside and 18,320 on the upside in NIFTY.
The final expiry of the year 2022 is over and it is a new series today. Hope you had an intense year in 2022 with experiences needed to start 2023 with clarity and confidence. Happy New Year!
