Weekly Update


The Nifty started the week slowly but bounced back midweek, closing strongly above the 22,000 mark. Even during recent dips, the index stayed above its 10-week moving average (EMA), which suggests a generally positive trend.

Looking ahead, options data suggests the indices could continue to climb next week. Notably, the Nifty closed above 22,000 and is expected to gain further momentum beyond 22,130. The next hurdle is seen at 22,500, with potential support at 21,400.

Both the Midcap and Smallcap indices also rebounded from near their 10-week moving averages on the weekly chart after some initial profit-taking, showing a strong recovery in the last four trading days. This overall market movement suggests positive sentiment and the potential for continued upward momentum.
