Nifty ended September series with a gain of nearly 6 percent, forming a bullish candle after forming red candles in the last three consecutive expiries, which indicates that bulls are trying to take charge from the lower end.

"We reiterate our bullish view on the Nifty and advice continuing with 'buy on dips' approach. Nifty has the potential to test 11,700-11,800 in the near future, so any intermediate dip should be considered as a buying opportunity.

Big News: Government to bring guidelines to make IBC resolution consistent
The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) will soon release a detailed set of guidelines to shield winning bidders in Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) cases against reinstated claims on acquired assets, reported Business Standard.
Companies such as JSW Steel and Tata Steel had brought the issue to the government's notice after the closure of the IBC process for Bhushan Power & Steel.
JSW sought relief against an order by the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) for the Bhushan Steel resolution plan. Tata Steel which acquired Bhushan Steel faced claims from different authorities.
Resolution under IBC usually means excessive delays and major haircuts in claims for most of the entities. Many cases are also stuck in endless or subsequent litigation.
Nifty recouped most of the previous day's losses and closed above 11,550 level, forming bullish candle on daily charts, indicating a positive trend for the coming session.
Experts feel the momentum may remain positive and if the index breaks 11,695, the crucial resistance levels, then it may move towards its earlier record high.
Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, Chartviewindia.in said it appears that at the recent high of 11,695 levels Nifty encountered selling pressure after hitting a resistance point of a downsloping trend line which is in progress from the June highs of 12,103 levels.
Hence, this index needs to breakout above the resistance point of the said trend line, which is placed around 11,692 to confirm its strength once again, he added.
Three levels of Nifty:
Intraday low- 11,466.35 | Intraday high- 11,610.85 | 200-DMA- 11,244.
