The market was heavily traded after recovering at the end of the deal during the downturn and was finally resolved with a modest gain on July 23, backed by banks and funds, shares of FMCG and IT.
BSE Sensex increased by 138.59 points to 52,975.80, while Nifty50 scored 32 points in 15,856 closures and formed a Doji Cross pattern on the daily charts as the close approached its opening levels. During the week, the index dropped 0.4 percent but formed a bullish candle on the weekly scale as the closing was higher than opening levels.
“This approach to the daily charts reflects a state of confusion among participants and one can expect a combination of consolidation or minor adjustments at the next meeting,” said Nagaraj Shetti, Research Technology Researcher at HDFC Securities.
He said the key area to resist the July 19 previous opening gap has been fully filled, but the top of the 15 900 gap has served as a barrier and has led to minor intraday vulnerabilities from the top. “More than 15,900 stable movements could only open up more in the short term,” he added.
You feel like Nifty’s short-term rise always works well.
“It is possible to combine other things or fix minor things from the beginning of the week early next week. Any weakness can find support at 15,750 levels,” he said.
Wide markets ended up mixed as the Nifty Midcap 100 index was up 0.17 percent and the Smallcap 100 index was down 0.46 percent.
