From P Close
CHART BASED CONCLUSIONS
Nifty finally cleared all the hurdles and closed past 16350 at 16364.4 which is an ATH close. It ended 11 points below the day’s high which is a good sign.
Nifty opened Gap-up mildly and then there was almost a retest of the P Close and then it never looked back and kept crawling upwards with the weekly expiry jerks in between.
Although Nifty has made an ATH close, the volumes are not high which is not a good sign.

INSIGHT / OBSERVATIONS
It was an uneventful expiry as all the drama and excitement happened on the Volatile Wednesday.
FTSE was negative and yet Nifty has managed to close at ATH with a good sustained move.
If the US markets do not end in green, Nifty may witness high actions.
The weekly candle as of now appears to be range-bound indicating that there is still a breakout or breakdown in the offing. The vols are not good enough for a bull market.
And tomorrow is Friday, the 13th!

This write-up is not a prediction mechanism for the movement of Indices in the Indian markets as the markets are unpredictable in nature. I may refer to many data points in the article but I do not base my view on any of these standalone. In fact, I prefer to react to the price moves than predict the price moves. I also do not review Open Interest. Whatever data points I am using, are all stated in the article. The article title as well as its contents can at best be stated as --- This Is How I Read Nifty . I hope I have been able to set the expectations right.
