Nifty: The Music Will Stop

The Week Gone By

The Dream Budget cheered Dalal Street. The NSE Nifty hit an all-time high of 15,014 on Friday, Feb. 5. Banking and financials were the champions of the charts this week. Other big gainers were PSU (+25%), Bank Nifty (+17%), and the Financial sector (+15%). We had highlighted this in our previous Momentum Moves video.

The Week Ahead

February began in a party mode for the bulls. The Nifty gained 10% post budget and hit 15,000 for the first time. This historic move indicates that February is the month for the bulls, and perhaps 2021 is for the bulls, too.

Bulls may continue with the momentum in first half of the coming week. We might see the writers of 15,000 CE (Call options) come under pressure once the index sustains above this key level. The music might pause in the later half of the week, probably Tuesday or Wednesday.


The Music Will Stop

This stellar run of more than 10% from 13,600 to 15,000 might pause in the resistance zone of 15,070 to 15,450. Though this range is only 2-3%, it's better to be safe rather than sorry.

Nifty Weekly Chart

The chart above is the weekly chart. The index is trading in a rising channel formation. The Nifty had taken support right at the bottom of the rising channel ahead of closing. The fast and furious move railed towards the resistance zone.

The Fibonacci projection of 14,753 to 13,596 at the 127.20% and 161.80% resistance zone is placed at 15,066 and 15,468, respectively. The RSI (Relative Strength Index) is forming a lower high. This indicates a negative divergence, which is a sign of caution for the bulls.

If you look at the second chart above, the index is trading around the resistance of the Bollinger band. Bollinger Bands are plotted at a standard deviation level above and below the 20-days simple moving average. The index is trading right around the upper band of the Bollinger Band that is placed at 15,080, coinciding with the 127.20% Fibonacci retracement.
