Further, as per O’Neil Methodology of market direction, the current market is in a “Confirmed Uptrend
” with two distribution days
in the last 25 trading sessions. Summary
All the above-mentioned technical parameters, along with derivative data and O’Neil Methodology of market direction, indicate a bullish trend in the coming days. From now onward, our bias would remain positive. However, the index may face some resistance around the psychological level of 16,000.
From now onwards, sustainable trading above 15,800 may open a fresh upward window toward 16,000–16,200 levels. Apart from Nifty50, Bank Nifty traded as laggard and underperformed the market. However, other major sectoral indexes outperformed the market. In the last week, Nifty IT
, Nifty Metal
, Nifty Pharma
, and Nifty Realty
sector did well.
In the coming week, we expect IT, Metal, Pharma, and Realty may do well and our bias would remain positive in these spaces.
