For the eighth day in a row, the market reached a new peak at 17436 on Tuesday. The benchmark indices BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 witnessed intraday selling pressure near 17450/58550 resistance level. The intraday activity has been lackluster with a momentum of near 150/500 points. The global cues were tepid too. Among sectors, after a remarkable rally, realty and IT stocks witnessed profit booking at a higher level. Whereas, some buying was seen in selective financial and FMCG stocks.

After the 800/2840 points rally, the indices are trading within a narrow range, which indicates bulls may start feeling discomfort to go further long near 17450. But technically, a short term correction if possible only below 17290/58000. For the next few trading sessions, 17290/58000 should act as a trend decider level, above which we can expect one more uptrend wave towards 17450-17500/58550-58700. However, trading below the same would trigger quick intraday correction up to 17250-17210/57700-57500.
