After about two months of extensive trading, Nifty saw a more than 16,000 decision-making exit on August 3 in support of the entire board acquisition.
Fifty-four reached 16,000 for the first time after a long merger phase. Sensex hit its new peak of 53,887.98, while Nifty made a peak of 16,146.90 in internal trades.
The Sensex 30 stock exchange closed with a profit of 873 points, or 1.65 percent of 53,823.36 while Nifty finished with 16,130.75, up 246 points, or 1.55 percent.
The BSE Midcap index closed at 23,374, up 0.19 percent while the smallcap index resolved a 0.23% gain of 27,134.
“With the market moving into an unfamiliar area, it’s best to take one step at a time and focus on energy-intensive packages. In terms of indicator levels, the next 16,200-16,400 levels should be viewed from the top, while the support base now rises to 16,000-15,900,” Ruchit said.
