“Market opened with a gap up tracking heavyweight’s gains and was able to maintain its optimism to the end, supported by the global market.

The market has held 14,700 smartly! We need to see if these levels can hold on Monday; if it can, we should be headed to 15,200. If we do not hold, we will retrace back to the support levels of 14,400. Holding 14,400 is imperative for Nifty.

Though it is subject to further price action if the market breaks the level of 14,900 and sustains above the level a new bullish rally will take place till the levels of 15,200.

The momentum indicators like RSI and MACD support the upside move and indicate potential upside from the current market level.
