Last Tuesday, the benchmark indices bounce back sharply. Nifty ended 151 points higher while the Sensex was up by 600 points. Among sectors, FMCG and PSU Banks rallied over 1 percent whereas despite strong momentum, realty index shed over 1 percent.

Technically, after a gap-up opening, the market held positive momentum and it also cleared the short-term resistance of 17,900/61,000 which is broadly positive. We are of the view that as long as the index is trading above 17,800/60,500, the reversal formation is likely to continue. Above the same, the index could move up to 18,050-18,100/61,300-61,500. On the flip side, below 17,800/60,500 uptrend would be vulnerable. Below the same, the market could retest 17,700/60,200.
