Resistance may cap the rally in MCX-aluminium

The Aluminium futures contract on the Multi Commodity Exchange has reversed higher in the past week. The 200-day moving average, at ₹121 a kg, has provided support and the contract has reversed higher after recording a low of₹120.90 on Wednesday.

It is currently trading at ₹124.1. Though a rise to test the ₹125.5-₹126 resistance region cannot be ruled out, only a decisive break above ₹126 will turn the outlook positive.

Inability to break above₹126 may pull the contract lower to ₹121 once again. Such a reversal will keep the channel movement that has been in place since March intact. A subsequent fall below ₹121 can drag the contract lower to ₹120 or ₹119 thereafter.

Traders who have initiated short positions on rallies at ₹124.5 can hold on. Retain the stop-loss at ₹127 for the target of ₹120. Revise the stop-loss lower to ₹123.5 as soon as the contract moves down to ₹122.5.

The bearish view mentioned above will get negated if the MCX-Aluminium futures contract breaches decisively above₹126. Such a break can take the contract higher to ₹127.5 initially. A further break above ₹127.5 can boost the momentum and will increase the likelihood of the contract targeting ₹130.
