Meanwhile, the Stochastic oscillator has given a bearish signal and is seen declining from an extremely overbought condition. The CCI shows the swing high is in place. The index may consolidate for another two days in the range. The Elder impulse system has formed two consecutive neutral bars. Though the bullish momentum has declined, the index has not given a weaker signal. Another two days of negative closing will give reversal signals. The the level of 41799 is likely to act as an immediate support, followed by the level of 41661, which is the breakout level.
