The Nifty50 opened above 1o,000 at 10,011 and slipped marginally to an intraday low of 9,977. But, then bulls took the index back above 10,100 to hit its intraday high of 10,104.45. It closed 111.60 points higher at 10,096.40.

“Bulls appear to have got a renewed lease of life as indices shrugged off Bearish Engulfing formation witnessed on Wednesday’s trading session with a solid bull candle. This move should certainly empower them to register new lifetime highs beyond 10,179 levels as Thursday’s strong recovery has tilted the tide in favour of bulls and trade as of now looks to be on the long side,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, told Moneycontrol.

“However, Bank Nifty is still trading below its 50-days EMS raising doubts about the sustainability of this up move. Hence, traders are advised to cautiously continue their long side bets with a stop below 9955 till further signs of weakness are visible,” he said.

India VIX fell down by 5.86% at 11.04. The decline in VIX with a sharp jump in Put Call Ratio has seen the strong comeback of bulls after one day’s breather.
