Nifty outlook and top trading ideas by Devang Shah for today

NIFTY      
CLOSE- 11557.10 (24.08.2018)

The market closed the 5th consecutive week in positive territory. It has achieved my short term targets levels near recent high as expected. It made a high of 11,620.70 levels on Nifty & 38,487.63 levels on Sensex during the week. It looks like extension case further as per short-term wave count chart. Any kind of short-term consolidation or correction is stock specific buying opportunity till short-term reverses.

The broader market such as midcap & small cap indices remained outperformer & closed weekly in positive territory. It is slow & steady extending on the upside as expected. Broader market will catch up with main indices with faster face in the rally ahead. One should still find out an opportunity to BUY quality beaten down stocks of midcap & small cap index from medium to long-term perspectives. As expected, BSE500 is the 4th indices to make new all-time high this week & join the bull market party with Sensex/Nifty & Bank Nifty. I feel rest of the indices such as Midcap & Small cap indices is also going to surpass All time high soon in coming months & this rally will have time wise consolidation rather than price wise correction in short term.

BANK NIFTY closed weekly in negative territory. It consolidated in a narrow range during the week. It made a high 28,386 levels so far in the rally. 26,926 levels is strong support for bank nifty for short term, till it holds one can expect higher levels targets in the range of 28,800-29,800 levels in short term. 26,000 levels is crucial support for bank nifty from medium-term perspectives until it holds one can higher levels targets till 32,800-33,000 levels on Bank Nifty as per monthly chart attached here. 

11,400/11,500 & 11,600/11,700 levels is strong support & resistance levels respectively based on option open interest data for expiry perspectives next week. Any kind of such short-term correction or consolidation is buying opportunity for medium to long-term Investment perspectives till medium term reverses.

Momentum indicators Daily KST & DAILY MACD both went in to sell indicating volatility in short-term ahead of expiry next week. One should be stock specific & follow the trend with trail stop loss levels till it reverses. Close below short-term reversal levels will lead to sharp correction till 10,500-10,400 levels on Nifty & 34,900-34,300 levels on Sensex in short term.
