The market turned volatile after opening flat and gained strength in late trade to close higher on July 7, led by buying interest in metals, select banking and financials, FMCG, IT, and pharma stocks.
The BSE Sensex climbed 193.58 points to 53,054.76, while the Nifty50 rose 61.40 points to 15,879.70 and formed a bullish candle on the daily charts.
“The daily price action has formed a bullish candlestick pattern carrying a long lower shadow indicating buying support at lower levels. The next higher levels to be watched are around 15,900 levels. Any sustainable move above 15,900 levels may cause momentum towards 16,000-16,050 levels,” said Rajesh Palviya, VP – Technical and Derivative Research at Axis Securities.
On the downside, any violation of an intraday support zone of 15,800 levels may cause profit booking towards 15,750-15,700 levels, he added.
The broader markets outweighed frontliners with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Smallcap 100 indices rising 0.66 percent and 0.62 percent respectively.
