Here’s how analysts read the market pulse:
“Nifty is currently trading around the upper end of the reverse channel, which can act as a make or break from a short-term perspective. A decisive close above the falling channel can lead to further extension of the current rally. However, there are multiple resistance parameters in the form of the key daily moving averages in the range (19400 – 19500) which can restrict further upside. In terms of levels, 19240 – 19300 shall act as a crucial support zone while 19500 – 19550 is the immediate hurdle zone,” said Jatin Gedia, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas.Rupak De, LKP Securities, said, “On the upper side, the rally encountered resistance at the 21-day moving average (21DMA). It is anticipated that the trend will continue to move sideways in the near term. A decisive breakthrough above 19,450 points could potentially pave the way for a Nifty rally. On the lower end, support is situated at 19,300 points.”
That said, here’s a look at what some key indicators are suggesting for Tuesday’s action:
