Technical Analysis of Indian Equities by Nooresh

Technical Charts–Brent Crude, Nymex Crude, Gold and USD-INR, Nifty

Its been some time since we have posted on Crude , Gold and USD-INR.

Gold  - Time for a bounce or end of the trend ?


  • Holding on to the long term trendline.
  • 1120-1180 remains a major long term support.
  • Multiple tops at 1330-1350.
  • Will it go back to 1300-1350 or break the recent lows.
  • A trade would be to keep a stoploss at recent lows and maybe look for a bounce and flip if it breaks down.

Nymex Crude

Nymex Crude

  • Reversing from upper end of the channel.
  • Also previous bottoms at 77-82 now acting as resistance.
  • A break below 65 would mean a trend change to downside.

Brent Crude

Brent Crude

  • Back to the upper end of the channel.
  • Previous bottoms at 88-90 acting as a resistance.
  • Also a trendline from 2008 highs would also come around 90s.
  • A break below 75 and then 70 would indicate a change of trend to down.

USD – INR – A major medium term top in the making ?


  • After breaking out above the 3 tops at 68-69 momentum has been strong.
  • Upper end of the channel comes to 76-78.
  • The last major range for USD-INR was 63-69 and 58.5 to 68.8 giving technical targets at 75/79.
  • We saw a similar move in 2013 when USD-INR broke out above 57-58 and headed to 69.
  • Can we see a similar topping out at 75-78 zone and which will be a major one for medium term ?

Nifty – Oversold but bottoming out is not easy

Nifty RSI

  • Nifty RSI did a low of 22-25 in the current move.
  • The last few times it has done so has been a major medium term bottom.
  • It happened instantly in 2004/2008/2008/2016 but it took a much longer and a few more lows in 2011/2016 with positive divergences.
  • On an average it has bottomed in 2-6 weeks.
  • Nifty 9950 is the last bottom and trendline supports at 10100-10200 from where we did bounce.
  • The last major breakout for Nifty was at 9100 and in last few years none of the multi-year breakouts have been tested – Example Nifty high of 2000 in 2004 hit only 2250-2500 in bottom of 2008, Nifty high of 6400 in 2008 got tested till 6850 in Feb 2016. So a worst case scenario after a bounce would be 9400-9700. ( we would review after the bounce for now its just an possibility )
