Momentum indicators on the daily and hourly time frame are in sync with the price action.
What should traders do? Here’s what analysts said:
Jatin Gedia, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas
We can expect the positive momentum to continue. On the upside, we expect the Nifty to target levels of 21000 from a short-term perspective. In terms of levels, 19865 – 19810 is the crucial support zone while 20,200 – 20,250 shall act as an immediate hurdle zone.
Amol Athawale, Kotak Securities
Market sentiment is expected to remain upbeat as long as the Nifty stays above the 19,900 level. On the upside, we can identify an immediate resistance zone between 20,100 and 20,200. If there is a convincing breakthrough above 20,200, it could pave the way for the Nifty to advance towards the 20,500 mark.
Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Research (Retail), Kotak Securities
On daily charts, the index has formed a bullish candle, and on intraday charts, it is consistently forming a higher high and higher low series formation, which is largely positive. For the trend-following traders, 19,935 could act as a key support level, above which the index could move up to 20,100-20,175. On the flip side, below 19,935, traders may
prefer to exit from long positions, and below the same, we could see a quick intraday correction till 19,850-19,825.
