📈Market Outlook

–Mr. Ratnesh Goyal, Senior Research Analyst, Arihant Capital.


On the daily chart of the Nifty, we observe that it has taken support from the 100 SMA price level, while on the weekly chart, we observe a Doji candlestick formation. Overall, it implies that we could expect some support from this level in addition to some stock-specific movements in the market. Nifty may encounter resistance around 18,050 in the coming trading session if it begins trading beyond that level, then it could test the levels of 18,250-18,400, whereas on the downside, support is at 17,780 if it begins trading below that level, then it might test the levels of 17,600 and 17,450.

Bank Nifty

On the daily chart of Bank-Nifty, we see a Hammer candlestick formation, while on the weekly chart, we see a Doji candlestick formation. Upon examining both charts, we can see some support from the downside levels. Whereas if Bank Nifty trades above 42,450 in the coming trading session, it can reach 42,750 and 42,900 levels; but even so, downside support comes at 42,100 and below that, we can see 41,500-41,200 levels.

US markets will be closed on Monday to honor the legacy and dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
