However, on Tuesday, the index nearly replicated this candle but on the downside. It formed a strong bearish candle and closed at day’s low. In the past two days, the 38800-level acts as strong resistance which the index was unable to pass through. However, the index still trades above all the key short term and long term moving averages. However, with today’s bearishness, we expect index can fill the gap and fall till the level of 37000 where it can find strong support. Moreover, its 200-DMA lies just below this level, so the index has a limited downfall below the 37000-mark.

Considering above points, the index is expected to trade in a wide range of 36000-39000 with huge volatility. However, medium term outlook remains stable as validated by moving averages and strong price structure on weekly timeframe.
