Nifty formed bullish candle formation on the daily as well as weekly charts with closing above 18,100 mark, as long as the Nifty trades above crucial 18,000 mark the uptrend may continue in coming days. After a long time Nifty has succeeded to close above 18000, which is broadly positive for the market. While important support is placed at 17,850 to 18,000 and there is a possibility of upside bounce from this levels towards new highs. If Nifty sustains 18,100 levels then we may see momentum towards 18,300 to 18,500, while below 18,000 will act as support. The maximum Put open interest at 18,000 followed by 17,900 strike and is also likely to act as a major support in the coming week. Maximum call open interest at 18,300 followed by 18,500 and is also likely to act as a major resistance in the coming week. Nifty could trade in the range between 17,800-18,500. The volatility index India VIX cooled off from 15.74 to 15.22 levels, cool off in volatility suggests bullish stance and it needs to sustain at lower levels for a bullish market.
