Trade Setup for Tuesday: Top 15 things to know before Opening Bell

The Nifty, which started on a muted note, gained momentum in the second half of the trading session on Monday, fuelled by short covering in banks and financials. The index made a 『Long White Day』 kind of pattern on the daily charts.

A 'Long White Day' signifies the market witnessed sustained buying interest from the bulls for most part of the trading day, which is a bullish sign. The index managed to reclaim 10,000 levels as well as 200-days exponential moving average (DEMA) placed at 10,092.

Such volatility was expected ahead of the early expiry and hence such strong price action would force bears to run for cover. As long as global cues remain stable, chances are the bias could remain tilted in favour of bulls.

「The Nifty registered a Long White Day kind of formation as it witnessed a powerful short covering rally which has erased the losses of last Friday’s session and went on to close above the critical moving averages on short-term charts suggesting a near-term bottom to be in place around 9950 levels,」 Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, Chartviewindia.in told Moneycontrol.

「A confirmation of a possible bottom will only come on a close above 10227 levels. However, this kind of strong momentum ahead of expiry session shall create enough panic among bears forcing them to run for cover in next few trading sessions,」 he said.

Mohammad further added that in the absence of any overnight negative global cues and technically sustaining above 10227 levels this rally shall get extended initially up to 10390 levels. 「At this juncture, it can be difficult to project a trend reversal but certainly for time being the ball is in the court of bulls,」 he said.
