Ready for a good start to the week? Well, I surely have good news for you. If the market’s rangebound movement over the past few days is really frustrating you, and end to this indecisiveness could be in sight. The Nifty has seen addition of a lot of short positions over the past couple of days. So some analysts tell us that this may mean the index is readying to make a decisive move on either side.
The technical charts say something else, though. The Nifty formed a Hanging Man pattern on Friday, which is seen as a bearish formation. Analysts say this indicates a trend reversal, and any gap-down opening today could further squeeze Nifty’s trading range.
For Monday, the 9,930 and 10,060 levels are seen as immediate resistance for Nifty50, while supports should come in at 9,905 and 9,850 levels.
Let’s look at the immediate triggers this morning.
Nifty50 futures on the Singapore Stock Exchange traded 7 points, or 0.07 per cent, lower at 9,940, indicating a flat opening for the domestic market.
But Asian stocks appeared to have shrugged of North Korea’s threats to strike at the US and gained in early Monday trade. When I last had a look at them, Nikkei was up 1 per cent, Kospi nearly 0.7 percent and MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan just about 0.1 per cent.
Remember! Wall Street still remains fearful and had a mixed session on Friday. The Dow rose marginally by 13 points on Friday night but the S&P500 fell 3 points and Nasdaq 37 points.

And then, Dalal Street is also talking about a sharp drop in investment flow through the P-notes route, which slumped to a five-year low of Rs 1.35 lakh crore at the end of July after Sebi enforced some stringent norms.
And some brokers were wearing swollen faces amid the buzz around extension of trading hours on the stock exchanges. Street veterans say this move would be of no use as they do not expect volumes to rise. The market is just not ready for such a change, they claim.
