Nifty futures were trading 71.50 points or 0.5 per cent up at 14,785.50 on Singaporean Exchange, suggesting a gap-up start for BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 on Wednesday. According to a technical analyst, if the market breaks the 14630/49600 level, the Nifty/Sensex could fall further on the support of 14530/49300 levels. However, a 50% retracement shown by the Nifty/Sensex after the announcement of the Union Budget could be a reversal for the market. “In short, there should be a buying strategy if the Nifty / Sensex falls to the 14530/14500 levels, however, if the Nifty closes below the 14500 level, it would indicate further weakness. On the upside, 14850/50350 and 14950/50750 levels would be the major obstacles,” said Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities.
