Technical Analysis:

On the technical front, Nifty formed a bullish candle on the daily chart as it seems that the Index is coming out of the consolidation phase. Though Nifty has been able to scale and is still sustaining above the short-term average of 21-day EMA but 50 DMA possess challenges for Nifty around the level of 19600-19600 range. 

Technical Indicator ‘Bollinger Band’ expanding too indicates that the rally in the market is most likely to witness an extension. Now Index is set to scale the 50-DMA presently placed at 19571, sustained close above the said level can extend the Index rally towards 19800 in the coming weeks as it is the placement of resistance trend line (19600) drawn adjoining Sep-Oct highs. Hence, buy on dips would be the prudent strategy to adopt. However, if Index fails to do so then bearish Flag pattern might be underway and downside zone of 19050-19000 will act as immediate support for the index.
