It can’t get better than this, if you trade in equity markets. Three straight sessions of rallies put Nifty50 well above 11300 and Sensex above 37,700.

The final tally – the S&P BSE Sensex closed 216 points higher at 37,752 while the Nifty50 ended at 11,341, up 40.50 points. Experts see the rally extending towards 11400-11500 levels supported by banks, and heavyweight stocks.

The broader market indices underperformed the benchmark with BSE Midcap & Smallcap closing lower by 0.4% and 0.3% respectively.


On the sectoral front, banks, realty, energy ended with gains, while metals, telecom, and healthcare stocks witnessed selling pressure.

After a recent smart recovery from the lows, some consolidation could take place in the coming sessions, suggest experts. The market participants would continue to focus on the progress of US-China trade talks, Brexit deal, crude oil price, and currency movement.

The Indian rupee on Wednesday clocked its third straight session gains, rising 17 paise to close at a fresh two-month high of 69.54 against the US dollar on sustained foreign fund flows.

On the institutional front, FPIs were net buyers for Rs 2722 crore compared to DIIs which were net sellers to the tune of Rs 1508 crore, provisional data showed.

Technical View:

Nifty formed a Hanging Man kind of pattern on daily charts

Usually, this pattern appears around short term turning points. So traders should be cautious before taking big positions in coming sessions, experts said.
