Above 10924, Nifty could move to 11300

Nifty has been forming lower tops and higher bottoms. This means the movement of the Nifty is getting contracted gradually in the symmetrical triangle. This setup indicates that very soon we would see one-sided move with momentum. Any level above 10924 would lead to higher top preceded by higher bottom and that would trigger the short covering in the index. Above 10924 Nifty could extend its gain towards 11300 target. However, longs should be protected with stop loss of 10628 on closing basis.
