Speaking on the intraday trading strategy for Nifty today, Subash Gangadharan, Principal Technical and Derivatives Analyst at HDFC Securities, said: “Nifty has reversed the recent pullback rally and has now closed near recent lows of 15735. The 20-period MA on the 15-minute chart is now below the 50-period moving average, indicating a negative moving average crossover.Further bearish movement is likely once the support at 15735 is broken.Although we remain open to very short-term rallies, we expect the downtrend to continue and gain more control once the recent 15735 intermediate low is broken.”
Advocating ‘sell up’ for traders, Ruchit Jain, Head of Research at 5paisa.com said, “We have been advocating a ‘sell up’ strategy recently in the markets and until there are signs of a reversal, we must continue with this. Thursday’s gap zone will now be seen as a resistance zone and we should soon see the index break its recent low of 15735. Below this previous low, the next levels to watch will be around 15,555 followed by 15 325 Traders are advised to continue trading with a cautious approach and look for selling opportunities from a trading perspective.”
