NIFTY CLOSE- 10,113.70 (28.03.2018)

Market sharply bounced back from lower levels in this truncated week after achieving first short term targets levels. It closed weekly in positive territory. It made a low of 9,951.90 levels on Nifty & 32,483.84 levels on Sensex so far in this correction. It has retraced almost 38.2% in this correction near recent lows indicating one of possibility of short term bottom as per daily chart but one should follow trend till it reverses or get any kind of confirmation further to finally collude end of short term correction. All the other Indices such as midcap & smallcap also closed weekly in positive territory.

It looks like wave-X pull back rally as preferred wave count so far as per daily chart attached in short term. And one more final leg of Wave-Z correction is still pending towards second short term targets levels as mentioned below. 10,300-10,350 range on Nifty looks strong resistance levels for short term. It may remain is thin range of 10,000-10,350 levels on Nifty before decisive trend at either of side in short term.

Short-term outlook for the market remains negative till Nifty trades below 10,479 levels and expecting target of 9,925-9,870-9,700 levels in short term. Medium term outlook for the market remains positive till Nifty trades above 8,968 levels and expecting targets in the range of 12,000-12,200 levels in medium term.

It looks like TIME wise wave-IV correction & will last it at least till March end before final wave-V UP begins as per my expectation. Any kind of such short term correction or consolidation is buying opportunity for medium to long term Investment perspectives till medium term reverses.

BANK NIFTY also closed weekly in positive territory. It has also sharply bounced back after achieving first short term targets levels. It also looks like wave-X Pull back rally as preferred wave count so far as per chart attached in short term.

10,000 & 10,500 levels is strong support & resistance levels range respectively based on option open interest data so far for next month series. Market will remain very volatile in this corrective phase.

Momentum indicators Daily KST & daily MACD both came in to BUY indicating volatility to remain in short term. 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 further rally towards medium term higher levels targets.
