The market continued last week to cross yet another milestone funded by the entry of FII and the addition of other Covid limits. Auto, Metals, IT stocks and index heavyweight Reliance Industries pushed Sensex to surpass 58,000 marks and Nifty 17,300 levels.
On September 3, Sensex rose 277.41 points to 58,129.95, while Nifty50 jumped 89.40 points to 17,323.60 and formed a bullish candle on the daily charts. The index gained more than 3.5 percent during the week and made a bullish candle on the weekly scale.
“Legally, the index has established a strong weekly candlestick. In daily and in-day charts, it also maintains a continuous pattern that reflects inflation at current levels,” said Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity technical Research at Kotak Securities.
While the short-term trend is still positive, some bookings of profits could come close as retailers are likely to set some profit at the resistance level of 17,500, he said.
“For retailers who follow this trend, 17,150 and 17,000 would be an important level of support, while on the flip side, 17,500 and 17,700 could serve as an important level of market resistance,” Chouhan said.
Wide markets also sold raw. The BSE Midcap index closed 0.35 percent and the smallcap index ended with a gain of 0.41 percent.
