On the charts, Nifty 50 now sits at a crucial point after yesterday’s up-move that helped bulls garner much-needed strength. “A decisive upside breakout of the hurdle of 17400-17600 levels could only change the short term negative sentiment of the market,” said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities. “Any turn down from near the resistance band could bring bears into action again. Immediate support is placed around 17300-17250 levels,” he added. Analysts recommend sticking to pockets showing strength. “Participants should focus on the pockets which are showing strength and choose the stocks accordingly. Among the sectors, IT looks strongest and seeing noticeable traction while others are showing a mixed trend,” said Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking.
