The in the previous week remained overall less-than-expected and the Markets showed no major signs of any corrective move baring few range bound slightly volatile oscillations. The expiry that happened in the previous week also remained relatively less volatile.
The coming week remains a truncated one with Tuesday being a trading holiday. In the 4-day Week that we have and beyond that, we expect the Markets to continue with it’s up move. However, we might also have to tackle volatile trading environment in coming days. Slightly overstretched oscillators and with remaining at the lowest levels in recent times will keep the Market participants cautious.

However, it is seen sharply moving towards positive crossover over coming days. Apart from a white body that occurred over Candles, no significant formations were observed.
If we run a pattern analysis on the Weekly Charts, it is seen that the NIFTY has ended above the short term 20-Period Moving Average. This means that in routine course of business, we can expect NIFTY to test its upper which stays at 10990. However, it is equally important to note that this is not likely to happen too fast and without any consolidation or minor corrective moves.
Overall, we fairly expect a modestly positive start to the Week and also expect the Markets to remain resilient to , if any, inflicted by global markets. However, we will need to continue to remain cautious about the immensely low that the NIFTY is experiencing. Though we may see NIFTY fairly continuing to advance, it continues to remain vulnerable to volatile profit taking bouts from higher levels. We continue to advise purchasing during dips and at the same time protecting profits very vigilantly at higher levels while effectively rotating sectors.
