The momentum indicator RSI is going down from the overbought region on the daily charts. This tells the lack of bullish momentum in the index for the short to medium term. The Nifty has an immediate resistance levels at 17687 (Day High) followed by 18000 (Key Resistance) and on the other side, it has strong support level placed at 17350 (Cluster of support) followed by 17150 (Key Support).
As per the overall chart pattern and indicator set up, we feel that the Nifty will continue to correct till 17350 if it breaches that level than it will further move down till 17150 mark in the coming future. Our corrective view will be negated if it sustains above 18000 levels on the upside. (Closing on 22/08/2022)
