Hope you all remember the discussions we had last Thursday about an upside pullback and it is happening beautifully now. We shared the same analysis in TSMS also.
Nifty has broken out of the recent resistance trendline and an hourly candle close above 18,210 will give more upside momentum. Bulls will be back in power if there is a daily candle close above 18,320.
Nifty’s 18,140-260 zones hold the responsibility to decide the market direction in the coming weeks.
A strong close above the 42,600-700 zone might trigger some movements in Bank Nifty.
Nifty Finserv has formed a double bottom pattern in 15-mins candle chart. Watch out for a 1-hour candle close above 18,810.
Considering the above-said factors, we should expect volatility tomorrow.
I do not expect a huge breakout above Nifty’s 18,430 or a breakdown below 17,750 before Union budget announcements.
The Bank of Japan maintained an ultra-easy monetary policy with a short-term interest rate of minus 0.1%.
