 Indian markets may open with a gap-up on Monday

The August expiry closed almost 12% lower which is an exceptional case in the last few years. If we look back, since 2008, it is for the first time the markets have closed with such a heavy loss in a single expiry. In the last week it was the Metal index & the BSE Banking index that lost the most by more than 4 per cent.

At the end of the week we saw narrow gains for most global indices. Investors were cautious before Bernanke’s speech to see if he will set out a plan that kick starts the stumbling US economy. Well, after the speech US markets recovered almost 4 % from their day’s low.

Based on charts, long-term trend is already spoiled as we have been indicating since first week of August. As we watch very closely on charts 4,750 turns out to be a long-term support for Nifty and it is utmost necessary that we get relief rally from the current levels, otherwise the sentiment could get more nervous.

Looking at the closing of US markets after the Bernanke’s speech there is good possibility that markets could open with some gap-up on Monday. In this bounce if Nifty manages to hold 4,875 next week we can expect a relief rally to further build-up, otherwise the down-trend will continue.

Next major support that appears as per the chart formations is 4,650 on Nifty and 15,650 on the Sensex. The volatility is likely to increase in next week as we have two holidays during the week and hence there could be a series of gap up or gap down openings.
