After a strong uptrend rally from 14885 to 15660, the benchmark indices witnessed a narrow range activity near an all-time high level. However, the larger texture of the market is still on the bullish side and likely to continue in the near term. Among sectors, the move of the Nifty IT Index is encouraging and we suggest accumulating technology stocks for this month. The Nifty 50/ Sensex 30 Index has closed below 15600/52000 which indicates day traders may take a cautious stance near all-time high level, and if the index manages to trade below 15600 then the Nifty may visit the levels of 15510/51750 to 15450/51500. On the flip side, for the market the immediate hurdle would be 15700/52300, trading above the same we can expect the continuation of the uptrend wave up 15770/52500 or 15850/52800 levels.
