“After two days of strong correction, benchmarks rallied sharply as Nifty found support at 17326 to reverse the bearish trend. Technically, the texture of the sharp reversal formation near the 10-day SMA suggests a further uptrend from current level.We believe that while the short term trend is still upward, uncertain global market conditions could see the Nifty move into a range of 17650- levels. 17450. For day traders, as long as the index is trading above 17450, a downward rally should continue to the levels of 17600-17650 -17680. On the other hand, below 17430, the uptrend would be vulnerable. ”
