This is 30 minutes time bar chart of Nifty covering move after recent low 8473.

It seems Nifty completed wave (X2) today at low 8794 as Irregular Correction as I was expecting in my last report. I was absolutely right at identifying the pattern as Irregular correction but failed to identify the top. I assumed inner wave (c) of (B) already completed yesterday at 8894 but inner wave 5th of (c) was pending which completed today at 8902 and there was an expected sharp decline exactly till end of wave (A). End of wave (A) was 8794 and (C) completed today at 8794.50.

Now, wave are following all the criteria for Triple Zigzag till now it seems to be in last “abc” cycle somewhere which is expected to be completed shortly.

If I am right at identifying this as Triple Zigzag the Nifty need to be go below 8473 again in short term after completion of last “abc”. Let’s have a closer look on today’s move.

This is 5 minutes time bar chart of Nifty covering today’s intraday move.

It shows, Irregular wave (B) completed today at high 8902 followed by sharp downward impulse as wave (C).  Wave (C) is a clear 5 wave’s move and carrying all its personalities. The bounce after completion of wave (C) may be the start of last (abc) cycle of Triple Zigzag before big correction again.

The bounce from low today is sharp and it is difficult to identify its inner wave as of now. From personalities, it seems waves 1, 2 and 3 of (a) or waves (a), (b) and (c).  The pattern may be clear tomorrows and Nifty will show the sign for next move when time comes. But cautions are advised as Nifty can decline sharply if it is really a Triple Zigzag.


The set up on charts is following all the rules and personalities of Triple Zigzag which is warning cautions for decline till 8473 again but top is not clear yet. And heavy long positions or overnight longs without stop loss must be avoided. There is a risk of sharp decline in near term. Trades can be done only after identifying small patterns on 5 minutes chart with small stop loss.
