“We believe that the markets have taken a breather after the sharp rise seen last week. So any corrections are likely to be short-lived and can be utilised to buy into quality stocks. Immediate resistance is now at 21,483,” said Subash Gangadharan, senior technical and derivative analyst at HDFC Securities.
On the hourly charts, RSI indicator saw a bearish crossover within the oversold zone, hinting at a waning bullishness in the market, analysts said.

What should traders do? Here’s what analysts said:

A decline below 21,350 could lead to a correction towards 21,220/21,100 in the short term. Conversely, resistance is anticipated at 21,500 on the higher end.
Rajesh Bhosale, technical analyst, Angel One
Caution is warranted as prices approach a key resistance zone, marked by indicators in high overbought territory. This resistance zone lies in the range of 21,500 to 21,600, representing the 200% reciprocal retracement of October’s price fall. Technically, this level also signifies the near-term target. Consequently, as we approach this critical juncture, a correction, either in terms of time or price, may become overdue.
