Technical Analysis of Indian Equities by Nooresh

Nifty a 300-400 + pointer move on cards ?

Over the last few weeks the consensus view has been the markets will continue to consolidate and be a boring time for the markets. But looking at the technical chart it seems the market can spring a surprise.

Triangle Nifty

  • Nifty has been in a very tight range of 10550-10900 for the last 2-3 months with most of the closing around 10700 mark.
  • A breakdown from a steep sloping trend line did not see much follow up on downside and we are back in the range.
  • In technical terms it may be called a symmetrical triangle with breakout points now at 10600 and 10900.
  • A breakout may lead to a 300-400 pointer quick move.

On a side note we are seeing a lot of participants focusing on writing options and with low volatility as well as low IVs its setting up for a surprise move. If one is gutsy this may be a time to buy option straddles for next couple of months. ( remember options requires a lot of risk management. Also be careful writing options for a couple of months)

Some of the technical charts in the Nifty 50 point out to similar structures and can give a surprise.

Tata Motors

  • The downward channel continues.
  • 250 and 290 the breakout points.
  • Will it crack further or manage a big reversal. Not a strong price action on break of major lows.

Tata Motors


  • The range now getting compressed after crazy moves post re-capitalization news.
  • 260 or 290 will be points to watchout for.
  • A decent weight in the index


YES Bank

  • Short term breakout above 340-345 done. Can it cross 365 and make a 1 year range breakout.
  • On the downside a break below 325-330 would mean a breakdown.

Reliance Inds

  • In contrast Reliance seems to be expanding the range.
  • Right now almost in the middle of the range.
  • Will it go towards 900 or 1050-1080 ?

Reliance Expanding


  • This one has broken out from the range above 9000.
  • Can it go back to 10k or higher ?


Mahindra & Mahindra

  • Will the momentum continue or flop ?


ITC Limited

  • 255-260 and 285-290 has been the major range areas for the stock for almost 6-12 months.
  • A good candle yesterday but can it follow up?
  • Will it break on the downside or upside ? In either case can be a big move.

Range ITC

HDFC Limited

  • HDFC Limited and HDFC Bank both making up almost 18% of the index can give the biggest impact.
  • HDFC is on verge of a breakout above 1940.

Triangle HDFC Limited


  • The largest weight in the Nifty with 10% +.
  • The momentum has continued strong over the last couple of months or more.
  • 2050 and 2150 are the breakout points.

Triangle HDFC Bank


The last of it the indices which matter a lot – Smallcap and Midcap Indices

Nifty Small 100 – Back to an equivalent of Nifty 9700 lows.

  • NIFTY SMALL 100 -- its back to the bottoms made in May/Sept 2017
    and equivalent of 9700 Nifty.
  • A falling wedge/triangle  formation.
  • 7300-7500 cross on upside and 6900 on downside may give clarity on further momentum.

BSE Smallcap Index

  • BSE SMALL CAP --- The 9700 Nifty equivalent bottom is a little away
    at 14700.
  • A falling wedge/triangle formation.
  • A move beyond 15700 or 16500 will give
    more clarity to the momentum.

    Do you see a Head and Shoulder pattern in ICICI bank?

    • Nooresh July 9, 2018, 17:17

      ICICI Bank 265-270 seems the support if breaks one may call it a confirmation of breakdown on HNS or any other pattern.

    Nooresh, I like your Techno funda style of investing and always respected your views on Nifty. However, I beg to differ here. As you might agree, currently we are in the middle of a bear market wrt mid and small caps. Considering this, I believe Nifty should meet up with its 500EMA (by either pricewise or timewise) and/or should touch upon the oversold territory wrt RSI (14 day) before it resumes the broader bull market. Until then I don’t see a break-out happening! You can correct me if I am wrong.

    • Nooresh July 9, 2018, 17:17

      The market does not follow any single way of moving or its not necessary for a touch to oversold territory. So lets see how it goes but if momentum continues it can surprise on the upside.

    Hi Nooresh, Do you see divergence between Nifty and Bank Nifty a risk going forward ?
    In recent months Bank Nifty has gone in a different (steep upward) trajectory compared to Nifty.
