EquityPandit’s Outlook for Nifty for week (January 16, 2017 – January 20, 2017):
Nifty ended the week on positive note gaining around 1.90%.
As we have mentioned last week that major resistance for the index lies in the zone of 8280 to 8320 where declining trend-line joining highs of 07/09/2016, 23/09/2016 and 24/10/2016 and medium & long term moving averages are lying. If the index manages to close above these levels then the index can move to the levels of 8450 to 8500 where neckline of the H & S pattern of 8500 to 8900 is lying. During the week the index manages to hit a high of 8461 and close the week around the levels of 8400.
Support for the index lies in the zone of 8280 to 8320 from where the index broke out of the declining trend-line and 200 Daily SMA is lying. If the index manages to close below these levels then the index can drift to the levels of 8100 to 8150 where Fibonacci ratios and short term moving averages are lying.
Resistance for the index lies in the zone of 8460 to 8510 where Fibonacci ratio, gap on gap down opening on 11/11/2016 is lying. If the index manages to close above these levels then the index can move to the levels of 8680 to 8720 from where the index sold off in the month of October-2016.
Broad range for the week is seen from 8200 on downside to 8600 on upside.
