The Nifty/Sensex has risen by 1800/5400 points in the last 37 days. Nifty Metal, IT, Midcap and Small Cap indices are the top performers. Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) has also contributed approximately 20 per cent in the current up move of the market. FMCG and Pharma are far behind this time. The Nifty/Sensex has a strong base between 15500/ and 15600. However, currently, the market is trading at the highest point of the current up move and we are witnessing mixed reaction in the market.

The stock-specific activity is increasing day by day, which is an indication of a “cautiously optimistic” approach from the traders. As the market is closed above the level of 15850/52750 we would see the levels 16050/53300 in the near term. Supports for the market exists at 15800/52600 and at 15750/52300. The strategy should be to buy indices only on plunges. The Bank-Nifty is heading for the levels of 35700. Need to be little careful while adding long positions with a long term view. The focus should be on Technology, Metals and the corporate facing bank.
