Nifty snapped 9-day losing streak on May 14 and reclaimed 11,200. However, for bulls to regain control, the index has to close above 11,250-11,300 convincingly else selling pressure could continue.

The final tally – the S&P BSE Sensex rose 227 points to 37,318 while the Nifty closed 73 points higher at 11,222.


On the sectoral front, the BSE Telecom index rose 2.8 percent, followed by the BSE Energy index (up 1.6 percent), and BSE Capital Goods index (up 1.4 percent). On the losing front, IT stocks came under pressure.

The rally was largely on the back of short-covering and investors should not confuse the move with strength in the index. Every bounceback will be used to book profits, experts said.

In Tuesday’s session, the Nifty staged a bounceback from 11,100 levels to reclaim 11,200 levels but found resistance around its five-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA).

The rupee May 14 recovered 7 paise to close at 70.44 to the US dollar on the back of gains in equity markets while US-China trade-related concerns and rising crude oil prices continued to weigh on investor sentiment.

On the institutional front, FPIs were net sellers in Indian markets for Rs 2011 crore while the DIIs were net buyers to the tune of Rs 2242 crore, provisional data showed.
