Nifty futures surged over 100 points or 0.57 per cent in early trade on the first day of the week, suggesting a positive start for BSE Sensex and Nifty. In the absence of any major domestic trigger, Indian stock markets would continue to take cues from global markets. Analysts say domestic sentiments remain buoyant as economic recovery is faster than expected and is well reflected in improving macro-data points. “Nifty has formed a robust higher high and higher low formation which is broadly positive. The important point is the index successfully cleared the resistance of 17800 and is comfortably trading above the same. For the index, 17775-17700 could be the important support levels. On the flip side, 18000 and 18200 could act as a major resistance level. Contra traders can take a long bet near 17700 with a strict 16650 support stop loss, while partial profit booking is advisable between 18100 to 18200 level,” Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities.
