This week in a nutshell (November 8th to November 12th)

Technical talks

NIFTY opened the week on 8th November at 18,040 and closed on 12th November at 18,103. It made a weekly gain of 0.3%. The index is trading above its 20DMA of 18,080 which might act as a support. On the upside 50DMA of 18,211 might act as a resistance. The RSI (56), and MACD turning downward suggests a further possible decline. 

Among the sectoral indices, IT (+2.1%), REALTY (+1.7%), and ENERGY (+1.3%) led the gainers. MEDIA(-0.1%) and PSU BANK(-0.1%) were the only sectoral losers.
