Nifty Spot Weekly Profile (09th to 13th Mar 2020)
Spot Weekly – 9955 [ 10751/ 8555 ]

Previous week’s ended with this ‘the PLR remains to the downside for a test of 10746 / 10670 & 10600 which if broken can bring more downside.’.

Nifty opened this week with a big gap down of almost 250 points & stayed below the first reference of 10746 as it left an initiative selling tail from 10751 to 10609 in the IB (Initial Balance) which set up for another trending week lower as Monday ended up giving a big range of 457 points while making lows of 10294. The auction then returned to balance on Wednesday after the holiday on Tuesday and though it gave a relatively big range of 211 points but stayed inside the Monday’s range with a failed attempt to break above the IBH of 10529 as it made highs of 10545 but made a similar close near 10450 forming a 2-day balance with the POC at 10469. Thursday saw another huge gap down of 440 points as Nifty made an OH (Open=High) start at 10040 not only confirming a multi-day FA (Failed Auction) at 10545 but completing the 2 ATR move down of 10150 as it went on to leave a Trend Day Down with the second highest daily range ever of 533 points as it made new multi-year lows of 9508. The auction then proceeded to make the third big gap down for the week of 480 points on Friday as it opened at 9108 and went on to hit the lower circuit in the opening minutes as it made lows of 8555. However, once the market resumed after 45 minutes it showed completely opposite character as strong demand came in as Nifty left a buying tail from 9367 to 8555 and got back into previous day’s range as it went on to trend higher even negating the OH of Thursday as it made highs of 10158 getting stalled at that 2 ATR target objective from FA after which it gave a dip to 9733 before closing the day at 9955 leaving a Trend Day up. The weekly profile is an elongated one with a range of 2196 points with Value at 9560-10440-10730 and the close being well inside the Value so staying above 9920-50, the auction could fill up the low volume zone of 10120 to 10400 before making an attempt to tag the weekly POC of 10440 above which we have the major supply zone of 10609 to 10827. On the downside, acceptance below 9920 could lead to a test of 9800 & 9605 below which we have the weekly buying tail of 9365 to 9135.

Nifty Spot Monthly Profile (Mar 2020) – Ongoing

The current monthly profile of Nifty is also showing the follow up of the last 2 monthly closes which were at lows as the developing profile of March has multiple extension handles starting from 11040 with the second one at 10950 & last one at 10050 so unless these extension handles are not taken out, the PLR for the rest of the month would remain lower. However, the current profile also has a long buying tail from 9508 to 8555 which could act as support for any dip(s) which come in the next couple of weeks.

Friday saw a repeat of another huge gap down of more than 1250 points but that was not all as it fell by another similar margin making lows of 21351 as the market opened after the lower circuit pause and similar to Nifty, started a trending probe to the upside once it got above the morning highs of 22830 leaving a buying tail till 23501 after which it not only got back into previous day’s range but went on to scale above PDH of 25223 while hitting highs of 25670. This imbalance of more than 4300 points from lows then led to a retracement as BankNifty gave a PBL of 24259 in the afternoon which will be the important reference point in the coming week before it gave a close at 25166 just above the 2-day composite VAH of 25111. The weekly profile is an elongated one in a range of 5740 points with Value at 24072-26616-27024 having a small distribution at top with the HVN at 26688 and a selling tail from 25923 to 25622 which separates the lower distribution from 25511 to 23716.
