Looking Ahead – Sell on Rise
Previously, the Nifty broke through the 15800 – 16800 level box on the downside, and 15800 is now a significant resistance to overcome before any meaningful run.
The Nifty trading range for tomorrow is 15350 to 15550, with a negative bias. The Nifty has also formed a bearish candle, showing further weakness from current levels.
The Average Directional Index (ADX), a trend strength indicator, is back at 25, showing the strength of the current ongoing downward trend. Similarly, in the chart above, the trend line is downward, with a major resistance level around 15800.
Further, current market sentiments are sensitive and fragile, and even a minor development can cause significant volatility.
As noted in yesterday’s blog, because there is no major economic news or data this week, indices may remain volatile for the rest of the week or move up or down in response to analyst reports!
The range-bound consolidation may continue for some more time. Plenty of headwinds ahead and the goal post is a long way away.
