The markets kept up the momentum gained from a positive budget presented yesterday. The most spectacular movement has been witnessed in the bank index which rallied by almost 3.50 % in today’s session compared to a 2.50 % rise in Sensex and Nifty. The rally is broad-based and derived its basic premises from the growth-oriented proposals in the budget across various key sectors of the economy, putting the highest emphasis on self-reliance and transformation into one of the fastest-growing economies of the world.

While a breakout above 14750 is the key factor from a short-term perspective, the market is likely to maintain momentum and reaches the level of 14950-15000. The momentum indicators like RSI, MACD to recover from their low made in the last week of January 2021. As such odds of a fresh breakout is significantly high.

The Nifty failed to get past the 14750 level which is a crucial point. Crossing this level would cement the upside direction of the markets which should lead us to 15000. However, it is advised to enter on dips or mild corrections. The index has good support at 14100 and hence we should accumulate positions closer to that level.
