Nifty breaks Head & Shoulder Neckline

After long I am writing on Nifty. There is a reason to do so - Nifty breaks medium term up-trend.
Nifty breaks below trend line as well as Head & Shoulder neckline.
As you can see in the daily chart below, the breakdown has come about with good volumes. Bears have a clear edge over bulls.
What can be done now-
Nifty is approaching the next support between 10100-10040. So it would not be wise to short at this moment. One can expect a bounce from the support. If the bounce comes about, Nifty can move up to its resistance near 10300-10350.

With this movement, we can assume that Nifty is in medium-term downtrend.
The same is also confirmed by the cycle change from 'higher top higher bottom' to a new cycle of 'lower top lower bottom'. The new cycle of lower top lower bottom is expected to continue for some time now.
If Nifty breaks below 10040, next major support is near 9750.

Bharti Airtel - Long Triangle breakout

Bharti Airtel- Long Analysis

Bharti Airtel is a second giant experiencing a similar breakout after a triangle consolidation for pretty long period. The earlier breakout was by Reliance Industries around a year back. I had written a post during the breakout phase on Dec 27, 2016, in Reliance Industries. Reliance Industries doubled since then. Below is the link of that post-
Reliance Industries Ascending Triangle

First picture below is a Quarterly Candlestick chart. I love using Monthly and quarterly charts. They give a clear picture at a larger scale. Once we get this helicopter view, we understand what is happening and what can be expected in the times to come.
You can see below that the stock has formed a long triangle beginning in Jan 2007 and since then was trading in the consolidation till Sep 2017. Since the period is too long and the chart we are considering here is a quarterly chart, the low and high of the consolidation too is large. The base of this consolidation is around 260 and the top is around 500.
The triangle went narrow during the quarter ended Sep 17. Finally the stock broke out of the consolidation in Oct 17. You can see on the chart when the quarter in ended Dec 17 formed, a huge green candle supported by increased volumes.
I have also produced a Line Chart below to understand the picture more clearly.

Current markets pressures have brought the stock back to its breakout levels of around 425, where the stock is currently trading.

The stock after breaking out has corrected to test the level of breakout, as it usually happens in most breakout examples. This is an entry opportunity.
I have produced a weekly chart below which is showing the origin of breakout and how it is currently trading near the same level after a fall of around 20%. This fall brought the stock back to its support near 424 which also the origin of the breakout.
We have experienced that this is an opportunity to accumulate the stock. 
This zone is between 424 to low of around 380. If the stock fails to sustain above 380, we may consider failure of the pattern. Remember that the patterns can fail, not usually though.

The stock has a potential to move from this level and the gains can be handsome. Though we can not predict the targets we believe that the stock can achieve first possible level of 530 and then 650 and then 840.
