Trade setup for Monday: Top 10 things you should know before Opening Bell
For the bulls to remain in command, the index has to close above 9,948 for the momentum to strengthen.
The Nifty, which opened with a slight gap on the upside, failed to hold on to gains as the index witnessed selling pressure post opening which made a bearish candle for the third time this week.
The index closed well above its crucial psychological support level of 50-days exponential moving averages (DEMA), but around its 13-DEMA which is placed around 9,860.
Market participants preferred to remain on the sidelines ahead of the long weekend. The market remained shut on Friday on account of a public holiday while global markets were open.
The Nifty index opened positive but failed to hold above 9,880 and remained in a small trading range of 30 points for the entire trading session. For the bulls to remain in command, the index has to close above 9,948 for the momentum to strengthen.
In Thursday's price action, Nifty opened at 9881.20 which was slightly below its intraday high of 9881.50. The index finally closed 4.5 points higher from its previous close at 9857.05.
“A dull day awaited the indices as Nifty witnessed an extremely range bound session of 32 points as markets headed for a long week end suggesting traders may not like to carry unwanted risk in the truncated week,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, Chartviewindia.in told Moneycontrol.
“Hence, unless Nifty registers a breakout above 9948 levels momentum may not gather pace once again. On the downside, traders are advised to watch the levels of 9740 below which selling shall ideally resume,” he said.
Mohammad further added that longs if any from a trading point of view should be cut if the said level of 9740 is violated.
On weekly basis, the Nifty index closed on a flat to positive note with the marginal gains of 0.20 percent and formed a ‘Long Legged Doji’ candle which also resembles a Dragon Fly Doji kind of pattern.
