12 Stuff That Will Decide Stock Action

According stock market research The Nifty ended only 80 points up in the week gone by while the Sensex shot up nearly 180 points to end higher for the second consecutive week at 15,752.05 points. Market experts citing the recent fall in the global indices say that the recent consolidation phase indicates caution.

Here’s how analysts read trends in the market:

 As the market continues to trade in a range, Technical stock Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said Friday’s sharp upside recovery from the lows hints at the possibility of more upside for the market ahead. A sustainable upmove above 15,900-15,950 levels could bring bulls back into the market and that could possibly pull the Nifty towards the next upside levels of 16,200-16,300 levels quickly. Immediate support is placed at 15,630,” he said.

The index is likely to consolidate in the range of 15,500-15,900 in coming sessions.

The index started the week on a strong note and witnessed consolidation throughout the week. The near term support zone was placed around 15,700-15,650, which the index breached on July 1. However, it received support near 15,500. Overall structure shows that the index is likely to witness consolidation in the range of 15,500-15,900 in coming sessions.

The S&P 500 also reversed its earlier losses to finish up nearly 1%. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 1.5% at midday Friday and reached its highest level since October 2017.

 Industrial Average rose 321.83 points, or 1.05%, to 31,097.26, the S&P 500 gained 39.95 points, or 1.06%, to 3,825.33 and the Nasdaq Composite added 99.11 points, or 0.90%, to 11,127.85.

Weekly chart of the Harami candle

The Nifty50 is in a consolidation range, wherein it has strong support in the 15,500-15,600 range and hurdle in the 15,900-950 range. A decisive breach on either side can set the market trend going ahead, they said.

A bullish engulfing candle was formed on Friday for a second time this week. Bulls are pinning their hopes on a move towards 16,000 as a level to watch out for. The Nifty50 index touched an intraday high of 15,665 before closing at 15,630.

On the weekly scale, a bearish black candle formed with a long lower wick. During this week’s trading session, bulls were unable to take control over the index while bears were able to keep the pressure on bulls by taking over the upper end of their zone of interest.

Trading: Bull Ladder Strategy is an option for traders
 The Bull Call Ladder strategy is the best way to trade Nifty. It is the most profitable option and will give you a maximum profit of Rs 500 per lot, which is equivalent to Rs 4.5K per trade. The stop loss should be placed at 16,200 and your target should be between 16,000 and 16,200. If you want to take full advantage of this strategy, you must ensure that there are no major movements in the market before placing your order on a particular level of Nifty’s share price.

Positive bias among stocks

The Momentum Indicator is a technical indicator that helps traders determine whether a security or index is trending or not. The MACD is known for signaling trend reversals in traded securities or indices. When the MACD crosses above the signal line, it gives a bullish signal, indicating that the price of the security may see an upward movement and vice versa.

The MACD is based on differences between two moving averages: 10-day and 26-day exponential moving averages. These two averages are plotted on a chart and then compared against each other to determine whether an asset is trending or not. If the difference between these two moving averages gets larger over time, then it indicates that the security’s price is becoming more volatile (i.e., changing quickly). The larger this difference becomes, the more volatile the price of that particular security will be over time.

Weakness ahead for stocks

The MACD (Moving Average Convergence/Divergence) is a technical indicator that helps determine whether the price of a security is trending or not. It shows whether the price is moving in the same direction as other prices in the market. When it shows bearish signs on Indus Towers, NSE -0.69%, Hindustan Oil Exploration Company NSE 1.35%, Bajaj Auto NSE 0.49% and Nava Bharat Ventures, bearish crossover on the MACD on these counters indicated that they have just begun their downward journey.

The above mentioned counters were at an all-time high on February 17th, but then started falling from there and touched a low of Rs 394 by March 8th. The movement was very strong and sudden indicating that this could be a good buy for investors who are looking for high returns with low risk level.
