The supports for Nifty are placed around 14,600 and 14,300 (rising trendline support) while resistances are around the above mentioned levels. We are now trading at the mid of this broad range and a move beyond the above mentioned levels would only lead to a directional move. Until we surpass these levels on either side, it is prudent to trade with a stock specific approach and avoid taking undue risks as we even have a long weekend ahead.

Manish Hathiramani, Proprietary Index Trader and Technical Analyst, Deen Dayal Investments

The Index is struggling to keep above 14,800 which was yesterday’s high. We need to get past 14,950 for an upward directional move to commence. If we can do that, we should achieve 15,300 as the next target. If we break 14,500, the markets will drift southwards and retest the recent lows of 14,200. Until either levels are not taken out, the Nifty will be sideways.
