CLOSE- 10,930.45 (28.09.2018)

The closed the 4th consecutive week in negative territory. It was highly volatile for the week. It was traded in the broad range of 11,170-10,850 levels during the week. It made a low of 10,850.30 levels during the week. Break of this lows will confirm the extension of correction for further lower levels targets as mentioned below in short term. Till that market may trade in a range with high volatility. As Market is in oversold zone, we may see surprise pullback rally in short term. But one should follow trend till it reverses. The short-term outlook for the market remains negative till it finally confirms the end of these wave-IV short-term corrections.

It looks like either flat or triangular structure as per short-term wave count chart attached in these wave-IV short-term corrections. It can be possible to take as impulsive structure as well as another alternate. But these corrections came as surprise beyond anticipation to me. Therefore, I would like to wait till this correction ends or volatility settles to finally conclude any kind of preferred wave counts.

The short-term outlook for the market remains negative till trades below 11603 levels and expecting targets in the range of 10700- 10550 levels in short term. Medium term outlook for the market remains positive till trades above 9951 levels and expecting targets in the range of 12500-12800 levels in the medium term.

MIDCAP & SMALL CAP indices extended correction & Witnessed stock specific sharp sell off further for the week. It has broken recent lows in this correction. It remained underperformer & still not bottom out as per my earlier expectation. One should closely watch out broader market behaviour for reversal of short-term trend.

also closed the 4th consecutive week in negative territory. It also made a bull trap at higher levels beyond anticipation & its still in wave-IV either flat or triangular correction as per chart attached. It looks much more clear either flair or triangle correction in wave-IV on It has made a low of 24706.80 levels so far in this correction. Break of these low will lead to an extension of these corrections for further lower levels targets till 24000-23600 levels in short term. Till that it may remain in range with high volatility.

While medium-term outlook for bank nifty still remains positive till it trades above 23000 levels & expecting targets in the range of 32000-33000 levels in the medium term.

10800-10500 & 11200-11500 levels are strong support & resistance levels respectively based on option open interest data for expiry perspectives this month. Any kind of such short-term correction or consolidation is buying opportunity for medium to long-term Investment perspectives till medium term reverses.

Momentum indicators Daily KST & DAILY both are in sell supporting the short-term trend. One should be stock specific & follow the trend with trail stop loss levels till it reverses. Close above short-term reversal levels will finally confirm the end of these correction & rally towards higher levels targets as mentioned below in medium-term.lead to sharp correction till 10500-10400 levels on nifty & 34900-34300 levels on Sensex in short term.
