    How far is 15,000 for Nifty

    "We have achieved the 14600 levels. The key resistance patch is now between 14650-14750. It needs to be seen how markets react here. Is it going to resist or fly out of those levels like all other resistance levels have been treated over the past couple of months? If we can get past the 14750 levels on a closing basis, we should be headed towards 15000. The current support range for the Nifty is 14200-14250," said Manish Hathiramani, Proprietary Index Trader and Technical Analyst, Deen Dayal Investments.

    50,000 in sight for Sensex

    "The decline in CPI inflation to 4.59% is a big positive for markets. But the steady rise in crude is an area of concern. Looks like Sensex is headed for 50000. But there are bumps ahead. The market is likely to turn highly volatile during the budget. Since valuations are high and investors are sitting on good profits, partial profit booking can be considered at every rise. It is impossible to time the market," said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

    Market in overbought space

    'In F&O space, we saw addition of fresh long positions in both the indices. We observed meaningful writing in 14500 and 14600 put options. Whereas, build-up was scattered between 14600-15000 strikes of call options. There are few derivatives data that hints market is now overbought. Firstly, the PCR-OI which is on the higher side at 1.75 and the stronger hands ‘Long Short Ratio’ around 80%, this certainly doesn’t give the comfort of holding longs now especially in case of index. Considering the above data points, we expect some profit booking any time soon and hence, it would be advisable to keep booking profits from hereon," said Sneha Seth, Derivatives Analyst, Angel Broking.
