The weekly chart pattern for Nifty50 shows an interesting structure. The index, in March, tumbled for four consecutive weeks. It made a bottom at 9,951 and thereon it has witnessed a swift rally in April.
The index posted five consecutive positive weekly closes after four sequential negative weeks which shows V-shaped kind of recovery in the index. This has resulted in an ‘Impulse’ formation on the upside.
An Impulse is a typical characteristic of a strong move leading to a significant progression of the price. The hourly chart shows that the entire impulsive move unfolded in a channelized manner.
Over the last few sessions, the index was in a consolidation mode, which resulted in an ‘Expanding Triangle’ formation on the hourly chart.
In terms of Fibonacci retracements, the consolidation was taking place near 50 percent retracement of the Feb-March fall. The consolidation i.e. the expanding triangle found support near the lower end of the rising channel thus tossing the index towards the upper channel line in the last session.
With this move, the index has formed fifth leg of the impulse structure. Fibonacci retracement reveals that in the last session, the benchmark index has tapped at the Golden Ratio mark i.e. 61.8 percent retracement of the fall from 11,171 to 9,951.
The level is at 10,705, will act as a crucial hurdle for the index in this week. A failure to cross this level on closing basis can lead to a minor degree correction over the next few sessions.
Thus a minor degree dip towards 10,550-10,500 is plausible, which can be taken as a buying opportunity. Overall, Nifty is expected to head towards the 78.6 percent retracement mark i.e. 10,910.
On the other hand, if bulls manage to surpass the level of 10,705 on closing basis, then the index can stretch towards 10,910 without any hesitation
