Speaking on SGX Nifty outlook Anuj Gupta, Vice President — Research at IIFL Securities said, “SGX Nifty today is trading 90 points down but overall trend for SGX Nifty today is positive. One should maintain buy on dips strategy and avoid taking any short position. Support for SGX Nifty is placed at 16,450 and 16,200 levels whereas it is facing hurdle at 16,800 and 17,020 levels."
"The short term trend of Nifty continues to be positive and still there is no indication of any reversal formation yet at the highs. But, having placed near the important overhead resistance around 16800 levels, there is a higher probability of downward correction emerging from the highs by next week. Important weekly support for NSE Nifty is placed at 16,450 levels," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.
"FII’s have covered some of their short positions in the index futures segment in last week and their short covering has led to the positive momentum. In the week ahead, the resistance will be seen around the 17,000 mark where we can see the 61.8 per cent retracement level of the above mentioned corrective phase. Since momentum readings have also approached the overbought zone, it is prudent to look to book profits now on the long positions and take some money off the table," said Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com.
