Sensex, and Nifty50 hit a fresh record high -- the next big question is -- will the rally continue?
Experts feel that we could see continuation of the current up move on the back of rebalancing of MSCI’s portfolio.
Technically, above 12040, Nifty would halt between 12150 and 12200 levels, and any weakness from current levels would be buying opportunity with a medium term view.
Market sentiment has turned positive post latest indications of some encouraging progress towards US-China trade deal, additionally, consistent buying by FIIs and hopes of continuity of reforms from the govt helped the sentiment.
Amid expiry jitters, market would watch out for GDP number and further development on the US-China trade deal, which could induce some volatility in the markets.
A day of consolidation for Indian markets as Nifty formed a bearish candle on the daily charts despite hitting record highs
There is no apparent sell signals or weakness on the lower time frame charts traders need to maintain an optimistic outlook
As long as Nifty sustains above 11919 levels, it is a buy on dips market. Next target is 12300-12350
If Nifty slips below 12006 kinds of levels in the next session then initially it should slide towards 11940 levels where the best buying opportunity is available with a stop below 11919 on a closing basis, suggest experts.
Three levels: 11919, 12132, 12200
