The market has formed a continuation formation followed by the formation of the Harami pattern which it has formed on Monday. It is bullish for the market. Also, the Nifty/Sensex closed between the bearish gap, which it had left between 15065-14919 / 50250-50991 last Friday. The market breadth was also encouraging as along with IT and FMCG we saw bullish activity in financials. Based on the daily chart the Nifty/Sensex is heading for the minimum target of 15065/50750. On the other side, 14830/50100 and 14750/49800 would be major supports. The focus should be on Technology and FMCG stocks.
