NSE India : S&P CNX Nifty — Daily Market Report for: Monday (April 18, 2011) By Dominic Rebello

Review of the Previous day:
The Nifty fell substantially on Friday (April 15, 2011) a net 86.95 points (1.47%) and closed at the 5824 point level. The market opened down with a gap at the 5898 points level. It then rose marginally and registered the days high at the 5907 points level at 9.16 a.m. It then declined sharply and registered the days low at the 5806 points level at 12.06 p.m. It then rose marginally and turned into a range bound movement until closing at the day. The Nifty remained below its previous close throughout the day and moved in a range of 101 points. Disappointing EPS guidance by IT bellwether Infosys for FY12 and the rise in inflation figures were the main reasons for the sell off. Sentiment was bearish and amongst the 50 Nifty stocks, 41 were losers, while 9 were gainers. Some buying was witnessed in auto, capital goods and consumer durables stocks, while heavy selling was witnessed in IT, technology, realty and banking stocks.

Pivot Point Analysis:
For intra-day traders the support and resistance levels are calculated according to the pivot point theory and are:
Pivot point = 5846 (This is the level where the trend is likely to change during intra-day).
Support (1) = 5785.
Support (2) = 5745.
Resistance (1) = 5886.
Resistance (2) = 5947.

Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index after having formed a long white body candle has formed a long black body candle. This is negative. Further, the index has dropped below the 5 days moving average, which is declining. Moreover, the velocity parameters which were positively trended have now turned neutral. All these indicate a negative bias
However, the index continues to remain above its 15, 25 and 200 days moving averages and all the three averages are rising. This is positive. As such these are mixed signals. Investors are advised to hold long positions but with a strict stop loss at the 15-day average at the 5800 point’s level.
