Here’s a rundown of today’s expected market movements…

Nifty Technical Analysis:

The market successfully breached the short-term resistance at 20,000/67,200, accelerating its upward momentum.

The index formed a breakout continuation pattern on daily and weekly charts, affirming the potential continuation of the bullish trend in the near future.

It's essential to acknowledge the possibility of some profit-booking at higher levels due to the temporary overbought scenario.

Trading Strategy for Nifty:

For short-term traders, focus should be on the critical support zones at 20,000/67,200 and 19,900/66,900.

Conversely, bullish traders may encounter a vital resistance zone at 20,300-20,400/68,100-68,500.

The recommended trading strategy involves buying on dips and selling on rises, aligning with the prevailing market sentiment.

Maintaining a trading position above this level could brighten the prospects of the bullish trend, potentially driving the index towards 46,700-47,000.

Nifty IT Index Analysis:

The Nifty IT index made a significant move by re-entering the gap area that was observed in April 2023.

Above 33,366, the index faces no resistance until 34,204, suggesting a promising performance in the near term. However, dipping below 33,100 could gradually lead to a decline to 32,700 levels.
