Technical Analysis for Nifty
Last Weekend Post had these lines as opening statements -
"Nifty is at an important juncture of trading which may decide the short term as well as medium term trend in this week or two. It seems to be coming out of consolidation, now whether it is sustainable or will give a false breakout to sink later is to be seen. "
and this as closing one -
"Bias is towards long now but cautious trading required to avoid getting trapped as indicated. "
Nifty came out of consolidation from the Trading range of apprx. 5740-5500 last week.
It also did give out a false breakout on Monday, giving a 12d high close but sank later below 5500 and 50dma , giving the lowest closing after 25/06/11.
Since the initial Analysis was Bullish last weekend but the above statements were at the hindsight due to various Resistances ahead and expectation of reversal , so the update on Monday eod suggested to keep a SAR of 5635 which came into play right the next day and obliged the whole week further .
Hence always remember the Quote above - " We cannot change the cards we are dealt ,
Just how we play the hand " . It emphasizes preparation , awarness and flexibility that will only help lock in profits and survival in these dynamic markets .
The Technical structure of Nifty has been altered or say reversed compared to last weekend. Now for the analysis of indicators as of today for further trading probabilities-
1. Indicators :
The Weekly and Daily charts show a downward bias with indicators and both trading below the mid B.B. ,though the Daily chart is near the lower B.B. and approaching the oversold region still it may remain so due to higher TF of Weekly giving a sell.
Only a strong rally may alter the Weekly chart but then may give a firm negative diversion later this week. Apprx . 5600 level remains a important Resistance as both the charts have mid B.B. near this mark.
2. Patterns & Trendlines :
The Rising Wedge in the Daily charts broke down conclusively last week after getting resisted at the Triangle Top trendline which is acting as a strong Resistance since last few months. This Week the Triangle trendline resistance will be at 5600-5650 levels.
The Target of the Wedge may be apprx. 5200 level from where it started.
In the Weekly chart ,The prices are approaching the important Trendline near 5400 levels which has supported the Trend since late 2009 and has never been broken on closing basis. Looks like the prices are in the final stage of the squeeze on Weekly charts.
3. Moving Averages :
The Short term averages of 5-20dema have given a Bearish cross after seeming to give a fast rise last week . Trading is now below 50 dma ,which now will act as a Resistance and may be tested for whipsaws.
The Weekly ema chart along with the Pivot points broadly shows that below 5450 zone is Downward bias , near 5550 is Neutral and above 5650 only is the Upward bias.
4. Option Analysis :
Its early days in the August series , the Open Interest build up suggests hedging of both longs and shorts by options , due to the direction uncertainity caused by US debt default issue and likely solution on Aug. 2nd. Broad range is 5400-5700 and a likely Resistance near 5600 level in case of an upmove. Break of 5400 may give a quick 5200 due to unwinding of positions as 5400 looks more of a hedged level than actual Support going by the data.
5. Fibonacci Levels :
We may basically retrace the 5700-5450 downtrend of last week (4days trading) in Hourly time frame initially this week. The quality of the bounce( faster retrace/not ) and holding of levels (5550-80 ) will indicate further trading of higher TF.
6. Elliott Wave Analysis :
Please check out the Basic EW insight that I have been following - Click Here
In the last EW post - Click Here , I had concluded -
" Now if breaks 5550 and then 50dma will be quite Bearish , changing the Counts and marking start of larger C somewhere at 5740 . Not giving it much importance till TA indicates so."
But this scenario is in place and TA indications also match , now we take this as the Preferred short term probability and the count that we have been following as an Alternate .
The Blue scenario indicates the basic Preferred count and the Black one as Alternate.
We may now be in the 3rd wave down of the larger C(Y) and we may have completed the first wave of the 3rd (apprx. 5700-5450) .
Alternatively we may have completed the zigzag wave b-B and may enter the c-B up next week.
Now concluding the above observations and corelations for trading the Next Week-
- Bias is down with probability of an initial upmove if 5450 is held.
- There may be a fast movement in response to the US debt issue after its settlement.
- If there is an initial upmove ,The 5530-50 zone will be the initial Resistance.
- Above 5570 the previous HVN , there may be a bigger bounce targetting 5600-5650 zone.
- If Breaks the lows of 5450 , then may test the Trendline support at apprx 5400 and lower to 5200.
- One may keep 5570 , still the HVN in 10d chart , as SAR now and trade for above levels.
Have A Profitable Week Ahead !!!
