Nifty Technical Analysis: holding 50-hour EMA

India’s Nifty 50 is trading in the red, but is defending the 50-hour EMA 10,445.

The bullish hammer reversal confirmed on Friday indicates scope for a corrective rally toward 10,700-10,800 in the next few days.

Therefore, I would be a buyer on the dips. The bullish outlook would be invalidated if the index closes today below the downward slopingĀ  5-day EMA.



Oil on slippery floors

Brent oil is looking south, having witnessed a bear flag breakdown on the hour chart.

As of writing, the front-month contract is changing hands at $84.26 per barrel. The RSI o the hourly and dailies is biased toward the bears. Notably, the daily RSI has rolled over from the overbought territory and has breached the rising trendline.

I would want to sell oil for re-test of $82.64 with stops above $85.14.

The broader outlook would still remain bullish as the 50-day, 100-day and 200-day are sloping upwards and are located one above the other.
