Nifty Today:

Market participants were waiting for the CPI data from the U.S. on Wednesday evening. The data was much in line with the expectations and hence, it did not have much impact on the market. Our markets have recently seen a strong upmove and the trend still remains intact as the index is still above its crucial supports. The momentum readings on the hourly charts are indicating some divergence, but many times indices usually witness just a time-wise correction in a strong trended phase and as the readings cool-off, the prices resumes the uptrend. Hence, one should keenly watch the supports on the index and avoid contra trades till they are intact. The immediate support for Nifty is placed in the range of 18240-18200 followed by short term support in 18050-18000 range. On the higher side, the resistance for the index is seen around the 78.6 percent retracement of the previous downmove which is placed around 18450. The Bank Nifty index showed relative strength in Thursday’s session and this index has crucial support placed around 42700 where the ’20 DEMA’ is placed now.
