Trade Setup for Thursday: Top 10 things you should know before Opening Bell
Thursday happens to be the expiry day for July F&O contracts. The outcome of the US Fed meeting will be crucial for Nifty's 10K prospects.
The Nifty closed above its crucial resistance level of 10,000 for the first time on Wednesday and made a bullish candle on the daily candlestick charts negating bearish belt hold pattern formed in the previous trading session.
A bullish candle formed on the daily chart on Wednesday signifies that the market witnessed sustained buying interest from the bulls for the most part of the trading day, which is a bullish sign.
The index rallied to a fresh record high of 10,025.95 and ended at a fresh closing high of 10,020.65 which opens up the window for target above 10,200-10,300, suggest experts.
Investors are advised to stay long as there could be a possibility of short covering ahead of July F&O expiry on Thursday. Investors can maintain long positions for an immediate target of 10,050-10,100 and place a stop below 9,949-levels, suggest experts.
“The Nifty50 signed off the day in style with a close above 10,000-mark which also witnessed a breakout above its 3-month old ascending channel on the daily charts,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, Chartviewindia.in told Moneycontrol.
“This breakout is throwing up a new target placed around 10,350 levels besides negating the bearish formations witnessed in Tuesday’s trading session suggesting strong momentum on the upside,” he said.
Thursday happens to be the expiry day for July F&O contracts. The outcome of the US Fed meeting could well decide the fate of 10,000-level on Nifty. A more hawkish Fed could well lead to index testing its support levels.
