After three consecutive bullish candles, Nifty formed a bearish candle which suggests that the momentum could be stalling. But, the good part is that we closed above 11050 which is a positive sign for the bulls.

It was a day of profit booking on D-Street. The S&P BSE Sensex which was up nearly 200 points closed with gains of just 89 points towards the close of the trade while Nifty50 managed to hold on to 11050 levels. The index finally closed 5 points up 11,058.

Broader market indices showed signs of weakness, but the overall market depth was tilted in favor of the buyers. The S&P BSE Mid-cap index closed 0.3 percent lower while the Small-cap index closed 0.11 percent down.

IT stocks succumbed to selling pressure for yet another day as rupee hit a 2-month high. Wipro was down 3 percent, while Infosys and Tech Mahindra shed a little over 1 percent each.

However, there were lot of stock specific opportunities which are available for traders, suggest experts. Investors should not turn their eye away from PSU banks, as well as metals which are moving higher post correction, they say.

The formation of long lower shadows in the last two sessions indicate emergence of buying interest at lows, but the Nifty is currently facing stiff resistance at 11,100-11118 which was the top formed on February 7.

If investors are long on the index then the crucial support to watch out is placed at 11000 levels while on the upside the first resistance is placed at 11,118 followed by 11180, suggest experts.

The rupee darted up 28 paise to close at 70 against the dollar on Thursday amid robust foreign inflows and strong buying in domestic equities.
