The Nifty recorded highest closing high. It once again faced resistance at the trend line resistance. It also faced resistance near to the prior high. It closed near the day's high and stronger with a long lower wick. After opening with a gap up, it tested the previous day opening level. It formed a hanging man candle. The volume in the derivatives market is very low compared to the previous day.
New peak margin rules did not impact the trend, but the volume affected. Monday's SGX Nifty's over 200 point volatility also not impacted the over-all trend. The market sentiments are very strong, and the liquidity push was sustaining the market at a higher level.
Every negative pattern and divergences also not shown any impact on market structure. On a 75 minutes chart, the Nifty is moving in an upward channel, and the RSI is moving in a downward channel. This negative divergence will negate once the RSI moves above the 73 levels. Even on the daily chart, RSI still in lower lows and lower highs formation. Until this is negated, it is better to be cautiously optimistic on the direction.
