Sharp recovery from medium support. Few evidences are giving signs of short term reversal. Bulls are back. Third weekly negative close; Near short term reversal levels.

Market closed 3rd consecutive week in negative territory. It has achieved my short term targets near recent lows as expected last week. It made a low of 7241.50 levels on nifty during week. It sharply bounced back from these levels & closed daily in positive territory at the end of weekly trading session, confirming end of 5 wave decline or ending diagonal pattern on main index in wave-C of Z. It has also broken out of channel on upside on daily chart of nifty. These all the evidences are giving advance sign of short term reversal & medium term bottom formation around these lower levels. One should wait level wise confirmation to finally conclude short term trend reversal.

Short term out look for the market remains negative till nifty trades below 7470 levels, sustain above it will confirm further sharp pullback rally till 7600 levels in short term & further above 7970 levels in medium term.

All the other indices such as Midcap, small cap etc closed weekly in negative territory except bank nifty which in the only indices managed to close weekly in positive territory & confirming short term trend reversal. One can expect sharp rally till 17500 levels i.e. upper end of channel in short to medium term on bank nifty till 14730 levels holds for short to medium term perspectives.

Market will remain volatile ahead of expiry next week. 7300 & 7500 levels are crucial support & resistance levels based on derivative open interest data for expiry perspectives at current levels of market. It may remain in this range ahead of expiry next week.

Momentum indicators daily KST & daily MACD both are still in sell suggesting weakness in short term trend.
