Market view: Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel Broking

The over stretched market can surprise us any time and hence we reiterate staying light in the market. We have already witnessed a glimpse of this possibility this week, but structurally nothing has been dented yet.

As far as levels are concerned, the upside in the coming week seems capped and we do not expect the Nifty to go beyond the sturdy wall of 17800-17950. On the flip side, 17450-17300 are to be seen as key supports. 

The first signs of weakness will be visible only after breaking this lower range. In addition, fear index INDIA VIX also surged a bit last week. Hence, we expect volatility in the coming week as well. We advise traders to stay light and follow strict stop losses for existing positions. Also, we are observing good stock specific action in the market. One can continue following it but try to book timely profits as well.
