Learnings from the Past Week:
We went into the last week with all screens showing red (click).
We said that the Bears would see the Dawn of 'Bull' times.
The Nifty shot up 100 points from the week's bottom on Friday (click).
This move was with the Fib61x (EOD) and 200 DMA (EOW) as supports.
Are the supports strong enough to warrant a decisive Bull up move- or is this a false dawn?
Lets find out...
Nifty 50: Long Term View (or) Month Chart, each candle is 1 month's price action (or) EOM Chart:
|CNX Nifty 50 - End of Month (EOM) Chart - 18 May, 2012.|
The EOM chart looks weak, with the Price below the 34 EMA.
You would have noticed by now, that the volume has been falling during this down move.
This means either that the real momentum is yet to kick in - or that the Bulls are just bidding time.
Nifty 50: Medium Term View (or) Week Chart, each candle is 1 week's price action (or) EOW Chart:
|CNX Nifty 50 - End of Week (EOW) Chart - 18 May, 2012.|
The Nifty is at the Median, of our channel.
Bulls bounced off the 200 DMA - weekly.
We have a channel break favoring the Bears on the STS.
The long tail of the week's candle shows the Bull resilience.
Bulls had the volume up - Bears seem to keep it down - see the red and green arrows above.
Nifty 50: Short Term View (or) Day Chart, each candle is 1 week's price action (or) EOD Chart:
|CNX Nifty 50 - End of Day (EOD) Chart - 18 May, 2012.|
We notice that the MACD Histogram is getting shorter and heading to the plus zone.
The Nifty is at the Median, of this smaller. EOD channel too.
Bulls found support on the the Fibonacci 61.8% of the 2008 low to 2010 high, marked on the EOD above.
The 34 EMA came within 15 points of bearishly crossing below the 200 DMA, on Friday's low.
Bounce from this low was 100 odd points.
The 5 EMA - EOD was the resistance for the Bulls on Friday.
Looking forward into next week:
Staying above the Fib 61x on the EOD & the 200 DMA on the EOW - the Bulls stay good for a strong up move.
Bearish cross of the 34 EMA & 200 DMA on the EOD, would be a long term blow for the bulls.
Looking at the above and the rest of our weekly studies - one smells consolidation in the air.
Intra-week updates shall share that piece of the action.
