The dip towards the support zone of 19330 – 19300 where the key hourly moving averages were placed was bought into and the hourly momentum indicator has also triggered a positive crossover from the equilibrium line which indicates that it has started a new cycle on the upside. It is still trading around the crucial resistance zone 19450 – 19500 and a decisive close above it shall lead to a further rally upwards till 19690. On the downside, 19300 – 19270 shall act as a crucial support zone from a short-term perspective.

Nifty remained volatile within a narrow range as traders remained uncertain ahead of the Fed Chair’s scheduled speech on Tuesday. On the daily chart, Nifty encountered resistance at the 21EMA and closed just below it. If it manages to surpass the 21EMA, which is currently around 19,414, it could potentially head towards the 19,650-19,700 range. On the downside, support is situated at 19,300.(Subscribe to ETMarkets WhatsApp channel)
