9:15 am: EXPERT TAKE

Tirthankar Das, Technical & Derivative Analyst, Retail, Ashika Stock Broking

"On the technical front, Nifty formed a small positive candle on the daily chart and is close to challenge the life time high. The trendline resistance adjoining the highs of Oct'21, Jan'22 and Apr'22 has been breached and is trading comfortably above it.  Against such backdrop one can expect that the present rally to extend further immediately towards 18100-18150 levels. Likewise support base has now shifted higher to 17,500 to 17,550 range (gap support). Momentum oscillator though are trading in overbought price conditions, but no signs of exhaustion can be seen yet rather had been supportive with weekly RSI breached past the 6-months falling trend line. Market breadth has seen remarkable improvement, indicating broader market participation across sectors. Thus, during the day Nifty is likely to open on a slight negative note, however overall outlook is positive hence, intraday dip towards 17,800-17,850 can be the buying opportunity for target of 18,100."
