India market rallied for the sixth consecutive session in a week. The S&P BSE Sensex rallied by about 3 percent while the Nifty50 gained 2.6 percent for the week ended July 24.

The Nifty breached crucial resistance levels in the week gone by but given the fact that the index is trading near crucial resistance levels; hence, some bit of profit booking cannot be ruled out.


“Good monsoon and expectations of rural markets being steady against urban, will remain the theme for the time being and provide comfort,” Paras Bothra, President of Equity Research, Ashika Stock Broking told Moneycontrol.

“Besides, the earnings season has picked up and few companies have beaten consensus estimates and thus stock-specific activity will be seen and profit booking will be an obvious outcome,” he said.

Technicals suggests that the market is trading in an overbought zone, but there are no eminent signals which suggest that traders should go short, but long positions could be reduced, suggest experts.

“Since we are extremely overbought, we are in two minds whether to go with the theoretical characteristic of this term ‘overbought’ or the practical one. Because, theoretically, the current placement of the market is just ideal to see some genuine correction; but practically as we all know, the market has the tendency to surprise us all the time,” Sameet Chavan, Chief Technical & Derivatives Analyst at Angel Broking told Moneycontrol.

“Hence, rather anticipating things from here on, we would rather let the market give us a further indication. As we step into the monthly expiry week, our eyes would be on a few crucial levels. On the upside, 11250 is the level to watch out for; whereas, 11050 has now become key support,” he said.

Chavan is of the view that as an optimist, one should remain hopeful as long as we are trading above this swing low (11050) and expect the market to give breakout in an upward direction to extend the move towards 11350 – 11400. However, a breach of the lower end should be treated as a short-term pause to see some decent profit booking.
