Nifty futures were trading 58.50 points or 0.37 per cent up at 15,787 on Singaporean Exchange, suggesting a positive start for BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 on Tuesday. In the previous session, S&P BSE Sensex jumped 834 points from the day’s low to close at 52,574 while the 50-stock NSE Nifty index closed just shy of the intra-day high of 15,765. Technical analysts said that the market once again strongly resisted going below 15,500/51700. With 15500/51700 levels holding support for second day in a row, the market saw a strong short-covering trend today. “After Friday’s indication, the market has formed a bullish continuation formation today and according to that 15800/52800 will be a big hurdle. However, if indices manage to close above 15800/52800, it could reach 16000/16050 (53400/53500) star. On Tuesday, 15800/52800 and 15650/52400 could be the trading range of the market,” Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities, said.
