The gap area of 14,652-14,785 will be major hurdle for bulls to cross i.e. for the bullish momentum to prolong.

US equity indices are trading at all-time highs and other global indices are trending bullish too. This can help the bulls cross the hurdle.

The move above 14,800 opens the door to 16,100 which is near 161.80% from 15,431 to 14,248.

Financial Services Index: An Underdog

This sector is the lifeline of the economy. Yet the Financial Service Index (FSI) has been an underperformer against Nifty since mid-February 2021.

In the last couple of days, we are witnessing outperformance from banking and financial service indices.

As per risk to reward structure, the FSI can be considered as best investment opportunity.

The weekly chart above is at the retest of the breakout at horizontal line.

Historically this is the trend in FSI as it retests it's previous all-time high and resumes the northwards journey.

The primary trend is bullish and as an investor, the dips should be an opportunity to accumulate. To confirm, the top-down approach from weekly to daily chart strengthens our view.

The weekly chart indicated an excellent buying opportunity. If we look at the daily chart above, the bulls dominate.

The slope of price has reversed taking support at demand zone. When we analyse the strength of the trend, its strong.

When we compare price action with the RSI (Relative Strength Index), it's at a bargain buying level.

When the RSI tests the oversold level of 30, the index tends to reverse and trends bullish. Similarly, if we look at the index now, it's at the demand zone and the RSI has turned from the oversold zone signalling a buy trade.
