Looking Ahead – Sell on Rise
Previously, the Nifty broke through the 15800 – 16800 level box on the downside, and 15800 is a significant resistance to overcome before any meaningful run.
The Nifty trading range for tomorrow is 15400 to 15650, with a negative bias.
The Average Directional Index (ADX), a trend strength indicator, is at 25, showing the strength of the current ongoing downward trend. Similarly, in the chart above, the trend line is downward, with a major resistance level around 15800.
Rising interest rates and inflation, as well as the rupee’s new lows and FII selling, are causing market volatility and large swings.
In the current market scenario, even minor positive news can cause large swings. This is also true in reverse, i.e., even minor negative news can cause massive selling. A simple trading strategy with proper stop loss appears to be the best bet. The range-bound consolidation may continue for some more time.
