The market snapped three-day losing streak and closed the rangebound session on a positive note on July 29, the expiry day for July futures & options contracts, backed by select banking & financials.
The BSE Sensex climbed 209.36 points to close at 52,653.07, while the Nifty50 rose 69.10 points to 15,778.50 and formed a small bullish candle on the daily charts as the closing was higher than opening levels.
“The daily price action has formed a small bullish candle with a higher High-Low compared to previous session which remains a positive sign. However the medium term trend remains sideways within 15,900-15,500 levels,” said Rajesh Palviya, VP – Technical and Derivative Research at Axis Securities.
He feels the next higher level to be watched is around 15,830. “Any sustainable move above 15,830 levels may cause momentum towards 15,900-15,950 levels. On the downside, any violation of an intraday support zone of 15,750 levels may cause profit booking towards 15,650-15,550 levels,” he said.
The broader markets outpaced benchmark indices as the Nifty Midcap 100 index was up 0.72 percent and Smallcap 100 index rose 0.91 percent.
