After four days of losess, Nifty showed strength on Tuesday and managed to surpass 11,000-mark on the back of sharp short-covering.
Rally was supported by heavyweights, including HDFC Bank and Reliance Industries. On the derivative front, short-covering was witnessed by call writers at 11,000 strike while put writers added nearly 2.5 lakh shares at the same strike.
On the technical front, Nifty is still trading well above its short and long-term moving averages. Bank Nifty may face strong hurdles at 21,800 to 22,000 zone.
In the coming sessions, we believe that volatility may grip the markets but bias would remain bullish as far as Nifty is trading above 10,950.
On the higher side, a break above 11,200 would once again add follow-up buying in the index so any dip in the prices should be considered as a buying opportunity.
