Nifty Snapshot

Technical note: The market is on a short term support trend line as you can see below in green. In recent times a good trend line was built (since Mid April, Red line) which was confirmed multiple times in May and June.

Confirmation is good. The more a trend line is respected the more it’s useful, when the trendline is broken. A break on big volume, which happened in end June, took the index up another 300 points.

At this point, we’re at another trendline that looks like a good support base. Today’s low volumes are not helpful, but a big volume downday is likely to take the index back towards the extension of the same red line.
