Wednesday, March 7, 2018



The session on Tuesday remained thoroughly disappointing as the NIFTY plunged to a fresh 2018 lows and slightly violated its important support zone of 10276-mark. The NIFTY traded with modest gains all throughout the session but the last hour and half of trade saw the Markets rapidly paring gains and the benchmark ended the day with net loss of 109.60 points or 1.06%.
Going into trade on Wednesday, Markets face a acid-test. The support zone of 10276 stands slightly violated. The NIFTY reacted after it tested the 100-DMA level in the morning trade. Currently the Markets remain very precariously poised as on one hand it is likely to slip further which may take it to test 200-DMA and on the other hand, the Markets also sit on very large number of short which may lead to short trap going further. In any event, the behavior of the Markets vis-à-vis the levels of 10300 will be important to watch for.
The levels of 10310 and 10365 will act as immediate resistance area for the Markets. On the other hand, supports come in at 10210 and then further lower at 10127 mark.
The Relative Strength Index – RSI on the Daily Chart is 34.2577 and it has marked a fresh 14-period low which is bearish. It does not show any divergence against the price. The Daily MACD continues to stay bearish while trading below its signal line. A big black body emerged on the Candles. This has lent credibility to the resistance area of the 100-DMA mark.
While having a look at pattern analysis, NIFTY has slightly violated the support area of the 10275-mark and has ended a notch below that. This translates into violation of the small rectangle pattern that the NIFTY has developed after its recent decline.
Overall, the levels of 10275-10300 will remain extremely crucial to watch for. The longer the NIFTY stays below 10300 mark, higher will be the chances of it getting weaker and testing the 200-DMA levels. On the other hand, NIFTY will avert any weakness if it manages to crawl back above the 10300-mark. The global markets trade extremely stable. Though the Indian Markets remain sentimentally weak owing to domestic reasons, it is not likely to remain decoupled with global stability for long time. Given the massive amounts of shorts that still continue to get piled up each day, we advice participants to not to create any fresh shorts at current levels. Staying away and remaining light on exposures is what is advised while adopting a highly cautious view on the Markets.
Large amount of short positions were seen being added on counters like STEEL AUTHORITY, ICICI BANK, JP ASSOCIAT, STATE BANK, DISH TV, AXIS BANK, RCOM, ITC, HINDALCO, LARSEN & TOUBRO and DLF.
