"For the week, Nifty has formed a long white candlestick closing at its high. This is the fourth straight week of gains. Momentum is still strong on daily chart but intraday we are seeing negative divergence appearing. But as long price keeps making new highs trend remains up and remain long in the market," said Ashish Chaturmohta, Head- Technical & Derivatives Research, Fortune Equity Brokers.
"Index has closed below the Jan high i.e. 6,110 levels. The rally hasn't seen break of any lows during its uptrend; hence 6025 level needs to watched on Nifty. If this is broken then we can look for a decline down to 5,930-5,900 levels," he added.

The company made a high in December 12 and then went into slow decline till March. The rise in the stock in last two months has lead to a formation of rounding pattern on the chart.
