Nifty Futures  - Daily Chart 

  • Thursday's range bound trading, just below the resistance area, has lead to the formation of a doji candle in the daily chart, implying some hesitation or indecision by the market participants.   
  • It's not yet clear whether Nifty futures will break out above the resistance or consolidate further in the present trading range for some more time.
  • A significant break out above the resistance area may lead to a rally of some 200 to 250 points or even a test of the all time highs in the medium term.

  • As envisaged in some of of the recent posts, Nifty index has already spent three weeks in the shaded area ( seen at the right end of the chart ) which is placed at the top end of the lower trading band. Therefore, a breakout either way from the present narrow trading range may happen in the next week or so.
