The week was off to a good start, as the Nifty reclaimed 11,000-mark and the Sensex closed above 37,000 on September 9. The Nifty closed above all its short-term moving averages such as 5, 13 and 20-day EMA.
The market will remain shut on September 10 on account of Muharram.
The day began on a muted note but the momentum picked up in the second half of the trading session, led by gains in telecom, capital goods, infrastructure, and consumer durable stocks. IT stocks were laggards.
The final tally on D-Street: the Sensex up 163 points at 37,145 and the Nifty closed 56.85 points higher at 11,003, the first time it crossed 11K since August 30.
The broader markets also outperformed—the BSE Midcap index rose 0.97 percent, while the BSE Smallcap index was up 0.92 percent.
"Market reversed its early losses based on a positive view in the global market that interest rate will be eased further by ECB. Global uncertainties like Brexit and US-China talks will be watched carefully by the market,” Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services Ltd, told Moneycontrol.
“While domestically, data like CPI, IIP, Auto production and sales and FDI/FII inflows (RBI) during the week will be assessed to understand whether the worst for the economy is over or weakness will continue in the short-term.”
Stocks that witnessed a rise in open interest and showed signs of a long buildup include JustDial, RBL Bank, CESC, and Voltas. Short covering was seen in stocks such as GMR Infra and Reliance Infrastructure.
On the technical front, the Nifty formed a bullish candle on the daily charts, and above 11,000 levels, a positive sign for the bulls. If the index holds onto 11K this week, the momentum should take it towards 11,200, say experts.
