Aug21-W1: Nifty Index 50 to do nothing this week (Aug2 to aug6)?

As stated last week, the support trendline (highlighted as green in this chart) was important. All hell broke loose on July 28th when Nifty Index 50 broke that trendline. The market though was able to pull itself back above the trendline and basically consolidated for next 2 days.

Now, here’s what I am looking at:

I personally do not like the drawings. There is too much clutter but at the same time, it all seems important to me. Nifty index 50 is caught between a rock and hard place. The logjam may continue this week to create a tight squeeze before breaking out in either direction. Thus, I remain neutral on market.

Scenarios for the week ahead (highlighted as yellow box with black lines dissecting scenarios)…

ScenarioProbabilityAnticipated Price Action
ConsolidationHighBetween 15975 and 15575
DowntrendLowIf breach below 15575; to drop somewhere till 15400
UptrendMedIf breach above 15975; to rise somewhere till 16150

The fed rate even is behind us. Most of the Indian stock results are behind us as well. Absence of any important event strengthens the case of consolidation. However, one major event is RBI monetary policy meeting wherein governor’s commentary can influence market. I personally do not anticipate any major influence from it though.
