What do the charts say: The overall trend on Dalal Street saw a turnaround on Monday. “A long bull candle was formed on Monday, that has engulfed the last three sessions weakness in one day. This pattern could be considered as a strong comeback of bulls, after six sessions of weakness,” said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research  Analyst, HDFC Securities.

Support and resistance levels: The previous resistance levels were broken by the broader Nifty 50 index during yesterday’s trade. “The strategy would be to buy in the market if it corrects to 14200. The Nifty would move above to the level of 15300 if it crosses 14800 levels,” said Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities. Now, immediate support for Nifty 50 is near 14200-14070 zone, according to Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities.
