Bank Nifty technical view: Bank Nifty formed a bullish candle on the daily chart as it rallied 2.65 per cent. Now, the next hurdle is at 36,660. “Any dip near its 21-day exponential moving average which is at Rs.35836 can be considered as an immediate buying opportunity. The first sign of real weakness would come only if we start sliding below the lower range of Rs 35,435-35,400. For now momentum indicators are not showing any sign of negative divergence,” Aprajita Saxena, Research Analyst, Trustline Securities, told Financial Express Online. Saxena added that for intraday traders 36600-36570 would be the key support level, trading above the same, the index can move up to 36930-37280 levels. If Index trades below the said levels it may slide down towards 36380-36250 levels.
Nifty support, resistance: On daily charts, the Nifty has formed long bullish candle which supports a further uptrend, said an analyst. “In addition, after a long time, the Nifty succeeded to close above 50 days of SMA. We are of the view that, the market is into the strong uptrend but due to temporary overbought situation market may witness some profit booking at higher levels. Hence, buying on intraday correction and selling on rallies would be the ideal strategy for the day traders. For traders, 17550-17500 would be the key support levels to watch on the Nifty. On the other side, 17700-17735 would act as a key resistance level. Below 17475 on the Nifty uptrend would be vulnerable,” Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities, said.
