Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Head of Technical Research, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas said, “At the beginning of the session, the bulls attempted to stretch their arms and tried to push the bounce higher. However, the index faced pressure as it neared 61.8 per cent retracement of the recent fall.”
“The rise in the last couple of sessions is showing overlapping structure on the hourly chart. This means that it is a part of the consolidation process,” he added.
“On the downside, the Nifty can revisit the crucial mark of 18000 where it is expected to take support near the 20 DMA. On the higher side, today’s high of 18342 will now act as a near-term barrier. The Nifty is expected to continue with the short-term consolidation,” Ratnaparkhi said.
