Banking has led the rally until now, and we expect the same leadership to continue. Bank Nifty 34,000-35,000 is certainly possible in 2019, Sahaj Agrawal, Vice President Derivatives, Kotak Securities said in an interview to Moneycontrol's Sunil Shankar Matkar.
Q: Will Nifty find strong support at 11,500 and move beyond 11,761 in coming week?
For the April series, we are seeing support for Nifty at 11,570 (spot). As long as we sustain above the same, a new high is not ruled out.
A breach of the same on closing basis would push the market into consolidation for the rest of the series.

In my opinion, the undertone of the markets is very strong. We remain extremely bullish on the broader markets.
Banking has led the rally until now, and we expect the same leadership to continue. Bank Nifty 34,000-35,000 is certainly possible in 2019.
