Weekly Technical View: Nifty has been unable to post gains for the last 3 weeks and if 5960-5930 support zone is broken correction can be fast. For becoming strong again Nifty has to trade above 6200 on a consistent basis and 6357 remains important resistance being all time high. Nifty has formed a lower top near 6121 against yearly high of 6284 and if the weakness continues break of 5930 can take Nifty towards 5800/5730 also.
Support 5960/5815/5722 Resistance 6135/6246/6360
Sensex has closed the week higher by 40 points at 20165 and this is first positive close after 2 weeks of negativity. Sensex has formed a Harami Cross as Weekly Candlestick pattern which indicates indecision and as long as sustained move below 19700 or above 21000 close is not seen the trend would be only stock-specific. If 19700 is broken major support would be 18970. Sensex in its history so far hasn’t been able to close past 21000 and once that happens there can be a major shift towards bulls where 22500 can be next target.
Support 19770/19300/18980 Resistance 20370/20715/20900
Technical Call: MRPL (Rs 82.80):- The stock is near an important breakout on weekly graph and sustained move above Rs 85 can take stock higher towards Rs 87-89 also. Stock trades at 11 day high and above Rs 85 it would be a 10-week high. Buying can be considered near Rs 83-84 levels for Rs 88-90 as target and Rs 80 can be an adequate stop loss.
