Update on The Ultimate Momentum Signal - 1st Sept. 2010

  Nifty Rebounds from the 5350 Support ... !!!

On the back of negative cues from the international markets, the Nifty futures opened lower at 5392 on Tuesday. It sold off further and broke the two day old support at 5390 to  test the support at the 5350 levels. Please note that charts on this blog had been showing this important one and a half month  old support for the past month or so. The Nifty futures recovered in a late rally from a low of 5356 to reach the day's high of 5414 at the closing time. The futures finally closed at 5399 with a loss of 30 points. Even though the markets closed after recovering some of the losses, the futures failed to reach the previous day's closing / last traded price by a wide margin. These kinds of subtle gaps have been pointed out in this blog in earlier posts too as signals of trend change. But Tuesday's subtle gap does not seem to imply much from the preliminary observation. If the international markets are providing positive cues on Wednesday, the futures may even fill the subtle gap and test the resistance zone at the 5450 - 5465 levels. The trading range for Wednesday may remain between 5350 to 5465. As seen and being pointed out on his blog  in the recent past, if the market fails in the test of an important resistance, it may test the support and vice versa. As such traders can expect two way trade in the new range between 5350 and 5465 for some time barring a covering rally above the 5465 levels.

Nifty Futures - Daily Chart

Even though the Nifty future broke below the 50 DMA during the last trading day, the last closes coincided with the support. Tuesday's market action has lead to the formation of  doji kind of candle which may indicate short term support or reversal on the daily charts. The lower panel of the above chart shows the various daily moving averages ( DMAs ) of   the Nifty futures.  The 20, 50,100 and 200 DMAs of the futures are placed at 5460, 5398, 5266 and 5177 respectively as on 31st August 2010. The futures may get supports at these various DMAs which are below the market and other previous lows in case of  a mild correction. Similarly, the 10 DMA at 5475 offers resistance too.
