Outlook for July 3
Amol Athawale, Technical Analyst (DVP), Kotak Securities
There is a clear picture emerging that India has been showing strong resilience on all growth parameters and is poised to do well. With most global economies, including China, witnessing degrowth, India has emerged as a green shot in a bleak scenario, hence investors are reposing strong faith in local stocks.
Technically, a breakout continuation formation on daily charts and a long bullish candle on weekly charts support further uptrend. For bulls, 19,050 and 19,000 will act as key support zones, while 19,300-19,400 would be crucial resistance areas. However, below 19,000, traders may look at exiting long positions.
For Bank Nifty, as long as it stays above 44300, the breakout texture is likely to continue and it can move to 45,000-45,300.
Rupak De, senior technical analyst, LKP Securities
The bulls continued to dominate the market as the Nifty reached a new all-time high. The surge followed a breakout from a period of consolidation, indicating strong bullish reversal. The overall trend appears positive in the near term as the index has consistently remained above its moving average.
The momentum indicator RSI has shown a bullish crossover on the daily timeframe, suggesting strong momentum.
There is potential for the index to move towards 19450 in the short term, however, on the downside, support is at 19,000. Overall, the market is exhibiting bullish characteristics, with the Nifty reaching new highs as long as it sustains above 19,000.
