    Nifty ended at fresh closing high at 17,519.45 with gains of nearly one percent and formed a bullish candle on the daily chart. 

    It seems the index has given a bullish flag breakout on the daily chart which is considered to be a bullish continuation pattern by nature so one can expect more upside if 17,400-17,300 levels are held which are immediate and good support zone on the downside. 

    On the higher side, the immediate hurdle is at 15,600-15,700. Any dip near the mentioned support zone can be again a fresh buying opportunity.

    Zee Entertainment: Essel Group may rely on white knight, shareholder votes to combat Invesco: A corporate battle cannot be ruled out at Zee Entertainment, which is trying to fend off a move by its single-largest investor, Invesco Oppenheimer, to oust MD & CEO Punit Goenka from the board of a company promoted by his family entity, Essel Group.

    Sources tell Moneycontrol that there is a two-pronged strategy at play in Essel Group, involving a white knight and vote gathering. The group is said to be scouting for support from all corners, and investors new and old. The current state of disarray also makes the company vulnerable to a hostile takeover attempt.

    Sources tell Moneycontrol that Punit Goenka is in talks with several investors to back him as a white knight in the battle with Invesco. In such a case, the new investor can call for a voluntary open offer for existing shareholders.
