Nifty formed a bullish candle on the daily charts
It decisively broke above 11,700 levels which is a positive sign but faced selling pressure near 11810
If Nifty trades above 11,800 for a couple of trading sessions then decks will be cleared for it to retest recent lifetime highs of 12,103, suggest experts.
After the breakout, the trajectory of the index changed into buy on dips mode and hence any correction into the zone of 11,740 – 720 can be an opportunity to create fresh longs, they say.
On the downsides, 11,627 shall remain as critical support, and a breach of this on closing basis shall weaken the current upswing.
