S&P BSE Sensex now sits at 47,746 while the 50-stock NSE Nifty is just shy of the 14,000 mark. Today, the last trading session of the year that saw Dalal Street tumble disastrously in March and then recover all losses in a multi-month rally also happens to be the last expiry of the year. SGX Nifty was up in the green, following the positive movement on Wall Street yesterday. Asia stock markets were trading with gains on Thursday morning with Shanghai Composite, Hang Seng, and KOSPI trading in the green.

Support and resistance levels: “At present level, Nifty has been facing resistance from physiological level of 14000 and crossing above it can show an upside rally while support comes at 13800 levels,” said Sumeet Bagadia Executive Director Choice Broking. However, analysts believe the short-term trend for Nifty is positive. “The short term trend remains up. The intermediate uptrend too is still intact and we are likely to see new life highs in the coming sessions.  It is important that the supports of 13864-13842 are not broken for the uptrend to sustain,” said Subash Gangadharan, Technical and Derivative Analyst, HDFC Securities.
