Triggers for Friday, 27 January, 2023

SGX Nifty futures set the tone for momentum in Nifty. All three benchmark indices were trading positive. Dow 30 was trading at 33,852.50, up 108.67 points or 0.32 per cent while S&P 500 were up 29 points or 0.73 per cent at 4,045.64.

"Nifty was trending in the range for the whole January series from 18,200 to 17,800 levels. On the monthly expiry day, Nifty slumped in a terrifying session and ended way below psychological 18,000 mark to close the series at 17,892. The level of 17,800, which is the 50% retracement support of recent up move is still intact and acting as an anchor point for the index.
The benchmark Index in January expiry has made a couple of attempts to breach 17,800 – 17,780 levels but was not successful as prices were continuously finding support near that zone.
Nifty on the weekly chart is placed between a broader high-low range of 18,200 -17,800 levels from the past 5 weeks. Furthermore, the price is also trapped between the 9 & 21 EMA bands which suggest a break on either side will decide further directional move in the index." -- Rohan Patil, Technical Analyst at SAMCO Securities
"The Nifty opened on a negative note on January 25 & tumbled down sharply as the day progressed. It breached the key daily moving averages on the way down. The larger structure, however, shows that the index is still in the range, which it has been witnessing for last one month. It recently tested the upper end of the range & thereon it has tumbled down towards the lower end i.e. 17800-17760. This zone has been acting as a strong support & is likely to provide support this time as well. Thus unless the level of 17760 breaks, the Nifty can witness recovery within the short term range." -- Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Head of Technical Research at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas
