Nifty forms an insider bar again this week!
Every dip in Nifty has been bought since the breakout on 3rd Aug’21 and the trend has been very strong on the upside.
This week Nifty has formed an inside bar again indicating price compression in weekly charts.
Price compressions are usually followed by price expansions and I presume that the price expansion might occur on the upside and that might take Nifty towards levels of 18300 levels in the coming weeks.
The broader markets also have been quite good this week with the smallcap and midcap index hitting new all-time highs.
The only way to ride this crazy bull run is to trail your stop loss and to not jump off the train preempting a crash. Don’t miss this crazy opportunity to make money by trying to play the guessing game.
As the saying goes, ‘The Trend is your Friend, until it bends”
The broader market is again showing strong signs and the market breadth number that I track using the CCI indicator has hit a 6-week high this week, indicating more stocks are joining the party again.
This strong uptick makes me turn very bullish again on this data point and we can see a strong market breadth in the coming weeks.
