The market witnessed a good recovery in the last hour of trade and settled the volatile session on a positive note on July 2 led by select banking & financials, technology stocks.
BSE Sensex gained 166.07 points to close at 52,484.67, while the Nifty50 rose 42.20 points to 15,722.20. Nifty formed Hammer pattern on the daily charts and a Bearish Belt Hold pattern on the weekly scale, with a 0.9 percent decline.
“A small body of positive candle was formed on the daily chart with long lower shadow. Technically, this pattern signals a formation of a bullish Hammer candle pattern at the lows (not a classical Hammer). This is a positive indication and could be considered as a bullish reversal after the confirmation,” Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.
According to Shetti, bulls have managed to defend support levels and have gradually pushed the said level upwards from 15,450 to now 15,650. This shows that another rally to 15,900 levels could be in the offing.
“Confirmation of bullish reversal by the way of follow-through upmove is likely to open further upside towards 15,900 levels again in the near term. Immediate support is placed at 15,650 levels,” he said.
The broader markets outperformed frontliners as the Nifty Midcap 100 index gained half a percent and Smallcap 100 rallied 1 percent.
