What Is In Store? The larger sideways consolidation movement of around 85508700 levels has been broken decisively on the upside last week and Nifty closed above it.This could also be considered as an upside breakout of the key hurdle of around 8650-8700 levels, which was an important lower top of July 2015.The larger positive structure of higher tops and bottoms is still intact and last week’s low of 8543 levels could be considered as a new higher bottom of the sequence. The current upmove could lead to the new formation of higher top, which is not yet confirmed.The formation of long range bull candles at the higher bottoms and the minor consolidations subsequently after such sharp upmoves continues on the larger timeframe chart. Hence, this could possibly mean the possibility of yet another consolidation movement in Nifty at higher levels for this week. The overall chart and momentum pattern is positive for the market and upside targets to be watched for Nifty are around 8950 and then 9150, which could be achieved in the next 3-4 weeks.
What Could Investors Do?
