Abbreviations I use in the post: PDH: Previous day’s high, PDL: Previous day’s low, IB: Initial Balance or First 1 hour range, NVD: Normal variation day (one of the market profile day types), OTD: open test drive, POC: Point of control, HVN (High volume node)
Observation from previous day:
On Thursday, Banknifty opened inside previous day’s range and sellers tried to push prices down aggressively in start but failed to test PDL and prices moved sideways for complete day forming a non-trend inside day. This could be due to expiry but Banknifty relatively under performed Nifty and this is cause of concern for Bulls. We need to see if we can get a follow through upside on banknifty today otherwise we need to be cautious on Longs
What can be expected now:
We need to observe where prices are getting accepted today. Above PDH is bullish , above POC is sideways to bullish and below PDL is bearish.
PDH, POC and PDL are important levels from previous day’s range. Acceptance below PDH can test swing high . Acceptance inside range will find support at POC, but acceptance below PDL can test buying gap zone.
Trade plan for today:
Banknifty is expected to open inside previous day’s range and there is no clarity at open. We need to observe where prices are getting accepted and look at trade facilitation by both bulls and bears to get a trade later. But in case of any confusion, better to stay out.
- Short trades are risky if prices trade above PDH
- Long trades are risky if prices trade below PDL
- Nifty is stronger than Banknifty. Long trades are good if we get confirmation from both indices, so watch out for Nifty also.
