The Nifty50 after opening above psychological 11,000-mark hit a fresh five-month high following strong global cues, but saw some profit booking in later part of the session on Thursday.
The index formed a ‘Shooting Star’ kind of pattern on the daily charts. Traders turned cautious ahead of June retail inflation and May industrial output data due later in the day.
A ‘Shooting Star’ pattern is formed when the index comes under selling pressure as traders start booking profits at higher levels.
This pattern is usually formed in an uptrend and is treated as a reversal pattern, but it would require confirmation before we can conclude that the trend will get reversed in near future.

The BSE Sensex surpassed its previous life time high of 36,443 and made a new record high of 36,699 levels intraday, before ending at all-time closing high of 36,548.41 (up 282.48 points).
The Nifty50 after opening at 11,006.95 rallied 130 points to hit a fresh five-month high of 11,078.30, but traders preferred to book some profits in later part of the session. It closed 74.90 points higher at 11,023.20 and is 148 points away from its all-time high of 11,171.55 seen in January.
Some profit booking at higher levels made traders cautious about coming sessions. Hence the index needs to hold 11,000-mark for further uptrend but if it falls below that level, then there could be some selling pressure, experts said.
“Five consecutive positive closes appears to have provided a good opportunity for short term traders to go for profit booking as indices traded above psychologically important resistance level of 11,000 which resulted in Shooting Star kind of formation with a long upper shadow,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, Chartviewindia.in told Moneycontrol.
He said weakness after such formations will get materialised if indices trades below the low point of such a session. “Hence, Nifty50 can come under selling pressure if it trades below 10,999 in next trading session. However, Thursday’s bullish gap zone between 10,999–10,976 can be expected to offer support on corrections.”
On breach of 10,976 indices may initially extend their downswing upto 10,900 levels, he said, adding upsides shall once again resume on a close above 11,078 which shall then lead to retest of life time highs.
India VIX fell 1.58 percent to 12.57 levels.
