Domestic equity markets Sensex and Nifty made a stellar comeback on Tuesday, after having suffered losses for two consecutive trading sessions. Now, having recouped almost all those losses, S&P BSE Sensex sits at 49,398 points while Nifty 50 is at 14,521. However, the leap from yesterday may not continue on Wednesday morning, as SGX Nifty was hinting at a gap-down start. Just ahead of the change in the Oval Office, Wall Street was buzzing with gains on Tuesday. Asian Peers were also seen mirroring the up-move. 

Global cues: On Tuesday, NASDAQ surged 1.53%, followed by a 0.81% jump in S&P 500 and 0.38% upward march by Dow Jones. Apart from stock markets in Japan, all other markets in Asia were trading in green. Kosdaq was up 1.55% while Hang Seng gained 0.41%. 

What do the charts say: Nifty made an excellent comeback on Tuesday, on the charts this signalled a strong return of the bulls. “A long bull candle was formed on Tuesday post negative candles of previous two sessions. This pattern could indicate a sharp comeback of bulls from the lower levels,” said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research  Analyst, HDFC Securities. He expects Nifty to challenge the all-time high of 14,653 soon. 

Support and resistance levels: “ The market is heading for 14580/49600 levels, which is a crucial hurdle point for the market. On the decisive break of 14580/49600 levels, it would result in retesting of 14650/49800 levels, which is an all-time highest level. On the downside, 14450/49100 and 14350/48800 would be major supports,” said Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities.
