Half Hourly Chart
Today was an up day but how! The close was 1.7 points below yesterday.But yet it gave a bullish feeling as it gapped down to 5926 , tumbled further to 5900 and then rose to 5985 only to tumble again to 5947 ! So was it a bullish or bearish day?
A breakout above yesterday's high of 5956 which could not sustain, a breakout from the equilateral triangle in red which sustained and the breakout from the downtrendline from 6338 which also sustained.But these breakouts are not impressive as Nifty still languishes below the 38.2% retracement levels of the fall till 5690. Today's trade gave some promise of a good follow up to the breakout only to encounter a bear attack to end the day without any gains to talk of. Half hourly oscillators have made a negative divergence.So Nifty is undecided whether to follow the bulls or the bears.
The green rising wedge on half hourly chart has supports at 5894-5919.Fibonacci supports are at 5922-5883-5853-5822.A trade below today's low 5900 will find support at 5855 , thursday's low. Support on the downtrendline from 6338 is at 5930.Only a close above 6070 will signal more bullishness.
Let's cut down the clutter and examine the Line charts
Daily Line Chart
The day's trading was flat. The Nifty is sandwiched between the 40 dema at 5959 and 20 dema at 5938.The breakout from the downtrendline from November highs is maintained but is not too impressive as the expected upsurge has failed to come.The rise has scaled barely 35 % of the entire fall.
Recovery of the fall from 6338 is laboured. The daily Rsi 14 has failed to move above the 50 level. Stochastics has turned down in the overbought zone and Macd is below zero line in sell.the positive was that thursday's low of 5855 was held.
Recovery attempts seem to encounter bear attacks. Only a close above 6010 will bring some strength to the bulls.
Supports at 5930-5900-5855 Resistance at 5976- 6010-6070.
