What should traders do? Here’s what the analysts say:

Rajesh Bhosale, Technical Analyst, Angel One
Thanks to last week’s decline and current prices surpassing recent highs, a saucer formation is now evident on the hourly chart. According to this setup, prices could continue their short-term upward movement towards the 22,000 mark, with the 21,800-21,850 serving as immediate resistance. In contrast, bulls remain resilient, quickly buying any minor dips. Looking ahead, the bullish gap left on Wednesday around 21,500-21,480 will likely act as strong support, before that the previous resistance around 21,600, which will act as immediate support.

The upcoming session has a monthly expiration and assumes significant importance from the end of the calendar year. Expect potential price settlements and increased volatility. Traders can view this as an opportunity and explore trending trading opportunities.

Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities
Nifty saw a significant rally as Put writers accumulated substantial positions at 21,500. Additionally, the daily chart showed a breakout from consolidation. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicates a bullish crossover, coinciding with the index positioned above a crucial moving average. Looking ahead, the index is potentially targeting a range between 21,750 and 21,800 on the upside, with support at 21,500.
