Indian market rallied by about 2 percent each for the week ended January 7 but bulls helped benchmark indices to conquer crucial resistance levels. The Nifty50 climbed above 14,300 levels while the S&P BSE Sensex inched closer towards 49,000.

The big support came from foreign institutional investors (FIIs) which have poured in more than Rs 9,000 crore in the cash segment of the Indian equity markets so far in January.

Positive global cues, the rollout of the vaccine in many parts of the globe including India, stable microdata as well as strong expectations with regards to December quarter results fuelled sentiment.

As we inch closer towards 14,500-14,600 the big support for the index is placed at 14,150-14000 levels. It is still buy on dips market as long as the index holds above 14K suggest experts.

“As we are in uncharted territory, momentum traders should look for upward levels step by step. As of now, 14400-14550 are the levels to watch,” Sneha Seth, Derivatives Research Analyst, Angel Broking Ltd told Moneycontrol.


“On the flip side, the cluster of supports is clearly visible at every 150 points. 14300-14150-14000 to be seen as key supports,” she said.

The broader market which also hit fresh record highs in the previous week will be in focus, suggest experts. The weekly price action formed a sizable bull candle carrying a higher high over the 10th consecutive week, indicating an extension of upward momentum.

Currently, all Nifty 50 components are trading above their 200 days SMA, highlighting robust market breadth which gauges the inherent strength of the market, suggest experts.

“The rejuvenation of upward momentum backed by across sector participation signifies inherent strength that makes us confident to revise our target towards 14600 in coming weeks,” Dharmesh Shah, Head – Technical, ICICI direct told Moneycontrol.

“In the process, we expect broader market to relatively outperform the benchmark as Midcap index clocked a fresh all-time high after three years, highlighting revived buying demand,” he said. Shah further added that support is now seen at 13800.
