Can the Nifty50 hold 17,000? Discover the main market indices ahead of Monday’s session

| Local Business News | Usa news

Indian stock indices ended a choppy session lower on Friday, ending a three-day winning streak driven by financials and autos stocks. However, gains in IT, oil and gas, and consumer stocks limited the decline.

What do the charts suggest for Dalal Street now?

The Nifty50 formed a reasonable negative candle on the daily chart with a minor bottom shadow, overlapping yesterday’s small doji candle, according to Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.

“This pattern indicates the formation of a bearish swallowing pattern at the swing high, suggesting a lower reversal,” he said.


Not out of the woods

The market appears to be in a neutral zone from the downtrend, said Sameet Chavan, chief technical and derivatives analyst at Angel One.

“If the bulls are to regain strength, the 17,200 to 17,300 levels must be broken with some authority. This development will confirm the completion of the recent corrective phase and the bulls would likely be back in control thereafter. If this has to happen, the banking space, which is lagging slightly behind in the recovery, must intensify. By then, we are not quite out of the woods yet, “he added. .

Here are the key things to know about the market ahead of Monday’s session:

Global markets

The three main Wall Street indices ended up 0.6 to 0.9% on Thursday, improving the mood ahead of the Christmas holidays. Encouraging developments have allayed investor concerns about the economic impact of the Omicron variant.

European stocks closed lower in light holiday trading on Friday. The pan-European Stoxx 600 index jumped 0.9%.

What to expect on Dalal Street

Shetti of HDFC Securities believes the recent pullback rally ended around strong resistance at the 17,150-17,200 levels. “There is the possibility of further weakness up to 16,700-16,650 levels this week Any bullish rebound from here could be an opportunity to ‘sell up’, “he said.

Angel One’s Chavan has maintained a cautious stance for over 18,000 levels. “It certainly worked well for us as the Nifty eventually entered our intended target area of ​​16,500 to 16,200 levels… The Nifty has maintained its position beyond 17,000, indicating that the bears have lost momentum, ”he added.

Independent technical analyst Manish Shah suggests avoiding selling in the market for now.

The Nifty must break through the 17,300-17,320 with a candle of strong conviction, which would break the downtrend line and set the stage for a rally to the 17,500-17,600 levels. As we move into the final week of 2021 , the Nifty may well show a gathering of Santa Claus to light up the mood in the market, ”he said.
