Technical View

After showing a sharp upmove in the last couple of sessions, the Nifty shifted into consolidation today as it closed with modest gains.

"A small body positive candle has been formed today with long lower shadow. Technically, this formation indicates a hanging man type pattern. Normally, the hanging man patterns signal word of caution for long positions at the highs. But, confirmation of weakness is required to call this as a reversal, said Nagraj Shetti, Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst, HDFC Securities.

"Hence, the short-term trend of the Nifty continues to be positive. Next upside resistance to be watched at 11,450 levels,” he further said.

Some experts feel that the Nifty has given a strong breakout and is expected to remain strong going ahead. The broad based participation is seen which is supportive of the positive outlook.
