Update for 4th January 2011

   A Late Edition of the Momentum Signal Update 


  • As indicated in the previous update, this post is published late, due to some unavoidable exigencies.
  • Even though Nifty futures closed higher on the first day of trading in the new year, the volume and open interest seemed to be unusually low in comparison to similar trading days, raising some doubts about the present uptrend.
  • Rising interest rates and tight liquidity conditions seem to be taking it's toll on the banking sector in today's trade. ( Please note that this possibility was indicated in the one of the previous posts. )
  • As the Nifty future had registered positive closes on the previous four trading days, today's losses can be considered just as a minor correction for the time being. However, this opinion requires revision in accordance with further market action.

"The next higher resistance is at the 6250 level at present. The lower supports are available at the 6090, 6030 and 6000 levels. Therefore, the important reference levels available for intra-day analysis and trading are 6000, 6030, 6090, 6130, 6175, 6250 and 6330."
