Update for 21st December 2010

    Nifty Future is Still in the Sideways Mode !  

After the long weekend, when the indian markets were opening for the new week, Asian markets were trading with losses on the back of tensions in the Korean peninsula.  The SGX Nifty future was also quoting below the previous close. Accordingly, Nifty futures too opened lower near the lower reference point at 5900. Trading remained between the  5900 and 5940 reference points in the first two hours of the trading day. But the recovery rally after the gap opening continued even though the Nifty contracts encountered some minor selling at the 5965 and 5990 levels. The day's high was at 6000. But the afternoon session saw a mild correction when Nifty futures traded lower to reach 5950. The close was at 5953.

Nifty Futures - Daily Chart

The daily chart of Nifty futures too shows the flat trading  range between 5860 and 6000 in which the contract has confined itself for the past five trading days. As the technical position of the market has not changed at all, all the previously  indicated reference points too remain valid for the next trading day. These reference levels are 5860, 5900, 5940, 6000, 6030 and 6090. ( Please see the previous post for a detailed analysis. ) Even though Nifty future closed below the falling trend line, BSE Sensex closed above the similar trend line on Monday, may be on the back of strength seen in the market heavy weight Reliance.
