The benchmark indices witnessed range bound activity, the NSE Nifty 50 ended 18 points up, while BSE Sensex gained 16 points. Among sectors, some buying was seen in Metal and Auto stocks whereas banking and financial stocks were under pressure. Technically, after an early morning sell-off, the indices took the support near 15700/52750 and bounced back sharply. They also formed small bullish candles on daily charts. We are of the view that, as long as the indices are trading above 15750/52900 the uptrend formation is intact. Above which indices could move up to 15950-16000/53500-53700. On the flip side, a fresh round of selling is possible, if the indices succeed to trade below 15750/52900. Below which, these could retest the level of 15700-15650/52700-52500.
