The benchmark indices bounced back sharply, the NSE Nifty 50 ended 289 points higher and the BSE Sensex gained 934 points. Among sectors, all the major sectoral indices traded in the green but Media, Metal and PSU Banks stocks outperformed. Technically, post reversal formation, on Tuesday, the market opened a gap up and held strong momentum throughout the day. On daily charts, the NSE Nifty 50 index formed a promising bullish candle which supported further uptrend from the current levels. However, the medium term trend is still on to the weak side.
For the traders, the support for Nifty/Sensex has shifted to 15500/52000 from 15250/51300. As long as indices are trading above 15500/52000 the chances of hitting 15750/52900 would turn bright. Further upside may also continue, which could lift the index up to 15850/53200. On the flip side, below 15500/52000 uptrend would be vulnerable.
