Friday, Nifty tested its 200-Day EMA support. Today though the index fell below the 200-Day EMA, but it took support from 17,400.
Technically I don’t consider this as the stop. But I believe that 17,100-150 can provide strong support to Nifty. Also, it has a small support near 17,350.
In Bank Nifty, the 38,600-39000 zone can be watched. What if this zone is broken? Then we can use 37,000 as an investing opportunity.
Technical studies do not expect a fall in FinNifty below 17,500 this week.
Nifty IT took beautiful support from 200-Day EMA.
Please note that most of the time, 200-Day EMAs won't act as exact support, we should watch the zone around them.
Most importantly a strong fight is going on in the market and it is easily visible. During these situations, there won't be any winner in just one or two days.
