Nifty: Choppy trend Continues
The NSE Nifty has been consolidating in the narrow range for the last six trading sessions. The Nifty has formed double bottom pattern at 16,950-odd levels on the daily chart. However, bullish reversal would only be confirmed if Nifty surpasses 17,393 on a closing basis. Any close below 16,950 would be considered fresh break down on the charts, which could drag Nifty towards next support of 16,604.
