Hello friend. I hope you are safe and healthy in this COVID-19 pandemic. In this weekly market analysis post, I’m sharing the Nifty and Bank nifty trend with support & resistance for the coming week. So please read this post till the end to know the trend, support, and resistance, targets & stop loss, and the best nifty and bank nifty weekly options strategies with their adjustments.

The market is all time high; Yesterday, Sensex touched the 50k mark. We are entering monthly expiry week, and the budget session is about to start. The market will be highly volatile in the coming sessions. So what should be our strategy here to protect our profit and the capital from any unexpected movement?

When we are trading in this profit. One thing we should keep in mind that profit is only yours when you book on time. So the first step here is to book your profit. You can book it partially or fully; it’s totally upon you. If you have a long term portfolio, you can hedge it by buying some protective puts or cover calls.

The next step is: prepare yourself for any unexpected movement in the market. We all know that market is supreme and any time it can surprise you. So we have to keep ourselves ready for any unexpected movement, or it is not bad if I say, be ready for the worst. When we keep ourselves ready for the worst, we will plan in advance for the steps we will take in that situation.

Because your reaction is the most important thing at that time. If you are calm, you can make some better decisions. and to keep yourself calm you have to work on your risk management. for example, if I’m taking a strategy today, I always think that tomorrow market will open gap-up or gap-down by 20%. So in that case, How much maximum loss I will face?

If my maximum loss is under my bearable capacity, I will only deploy and hold that position overnight because I can keep my calm until only when the loss is under my risk-taking capacity. That’s why I always prefer some limited risk-strategies for overnight positions (You can click here to learn these strategies with me). So always think about the worst and keep yourself ready in advance.

So these are the steps I always follow to initiate a strategy and manage my trades. Now. Lets us look at the charts and other data to find the trend and support resistance for the coming week.


Weekly market analysis: Nifty50

Nifty chart today

Nifty continues its bull rally this week too. Made a new all-time high 14753.55 on Thursday. Now when Nifty is at an all-time high, what should be our strategy here?

I believe follow the market blindly. I believe in reacting instead of predicting. Ride the trend and act only when you have a solid reason to react. Right now, there is no sign of weakness, so no need to take a contra trade here. Just follow the trend that is UP right now. So keep your long trade and find a buy-on-dips opportunity with any decline.

Few more thing we should keep in mind here: Market is all-time high so we can’t neglect a fall due to profit booking on the higher levels. So book your profit partially or hedge your positions. We are heading to the budget session so volatility will be very high in coming sessions, so trade with limited-risk strategies now.

Now, based on the chart, 14820 is acting as the immediate resistance level (which is our first target too). And 14050 is acting as the immediate support level here.

A breakout from 14820 will lead to a higher level at 15300 and a breakdown from 14050 will lead to a lower level at 13570. Keep following on Twitter for real-time updates.

Weekly Market analysis: Bank Nifty

Banknifty weekly trend analysis

After given a breakout from its crucial resistance level, i.e.,25200, we saw an excellent recovery in BankNifty. BankNifty is trading it in a time-high zone, and there is no sign of weakness.

After made a all time high at 32842.30 on Thursday, we saw some profit booking from the higher levels. I suggest, you should book profit in your long trade because:

We can’t neglect the possibility of profit booking in this continuous rally, so keep your trades with a proper hedge. 32600 is the level we should keep on the radar. A sustainable recovery will lead to the next target of 33300.

On the downside, 30850 is acting a the immediate support level. A breakdown will lead to 29500 and A sell signal will only generate after a breakdown from 29000. So if you see a downfall from the current level, our strategy should be buy-on-dips until BankNifty is holding 29500.
