    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking:

    Markets regained momentum and settled with gains of nearly one and a half percent, tracking firm global cues. After the gap-up start, the benchmark gradually inched higher as the day progressed wherein the sectors, barring IT, contributed to the move. Finally, the Nifty closed around the day’s high at 16,931 levels. The broader market indices, midcap and small-cap, too ended with healthy gains in the range of 1.5-1.9%.
    The surge in the index was led by banking and financials pack today, which look upbeat to maintain the bias. Going ahead, the upcoming macroeconomic data i.e. GDP numbers and auto sales numbers will be in focus for further cues on economic recovery. We expect the prevailing uptrend to continue and suggest keeping the focus on the selection of stocks.

    Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research, Kotak Securities:

    Key benchmark indices witnessed a spectacular rally, with benchmark Nifty rallying over 200 points after the breakout of 16700 level. The texture of a breakout continuation formation suggests an uptrend wave is likely to continue in the near future. For the day traders, the support has shifted from 16700 to 16800-16850 levels. 

    On the flip side, markets may take temporary pause near 17000-17050 levels due to an extended rally, while intraday charts suggest the market is in an overbought situation. As long as the index holds 16800 level, the uptrend formation could continue up to 17000-17050 levels, whereas on the down side, below the 16800 level uptrend would be vulnerable.

    Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities:

    Strong move has been witnessed on the first day of the week and the index closed a day on fresh highs at 16,931 with gains of nearly one & a half percent forming a strong bullish candle on the daily chart. 

    The index reached its immediate targets of the 17k mark, so traders are suggested to lock some gains near the 17k mark, also fresh buying will be suggested on a dip near 16850 zone and not here as risk rewards will not be in favour. 

    Immediate support for Nifty is coming near 16850-16770 zone and if managed to hold above-said levels we may see the index to breach 17k mark and resistance is coming near 17k mark.
