After a muted last week’s price action, this week’s opening was positive but post strong opening once again the Nifty 50 / BSE Sensex took resistance near 15780/ 52700 and corrected sharply. Despite sharp intraday fall indices one more time held 15630/52220 support level and reversed sharply. In contrast to Monday’s trade, today the market sustained after the initial round of profit-taking and quickly reversed back to 15800/52700 levels, which is broadly positive for the benchmark indices. Purely under the leadership of financials, the market has managed to close above the levels of 15800/52700.

Technically, it’s a bullish continuation formation and with the help of it, the Nifty/Sensex would again hit the tall wall of 15900/15930 (53000/53100). On a daily basis, 10 and 20 days SMAs offered sacrosanct support to the short-term trend that would act as the final stop loss for holding any long positions. On Wednesday 15900/15930 (53000/53100) would be major hurdles and support would be at 15730/52500 and 15700/52400 levels. Buying on dips would be the ideal strategy for the trades. Sector-specific, uptrend continuation texture likely to continue in the Banking and Metal stocks.
