A key fundamental trigger will be the Indian quarterly GDP, which was released a few minutes before publishing this piece. It came in at 13.5%, and despite not meeting the market expectation of a 15.2% growth, it is remarkably higher than the previous number of 4.1%.

Nifty 50 Forecast

The penetration close above the 17605 resistance met the filter for a breakout. This leaves the bulls with a chance to aim for 17974 (19 August high). Above this level, the uptrend resumes, targeting the year-to-date high at 18349 (18 January 2022 high). 18603 is the next target to the north if the bulls take out 18349.

On the flip side, a corrective decline is possible if the bears degrade the pivots at 17605 and 17125 (7 February low and 4 May high). This scenario would see 16789 and 16407 emerge as the next downside targets. 15894 (14 July low) and 15473 (21 June low) are additional targets to the south if there is further price deterioration.
