Taking Stock: Sensex hits record high; Nifty flirts with 12K for the first time since June

Experts feel that the upside is intact and investors should use dips to accumulate stocks or create long positions.

The Nifty50 had a touch and go moment with 12,000 levels for the first time since June 11. Meanwhile, the S&P BSE Sensex rallied to a fresh record high of 40,606.91 in intraday trade on November 6.

Let’s look at the final tally on D-Street – the S&P BSE Sensex rose 221 points to a record closing high of 40,469 while the Nifty50 ended 48 points higher at record closing high of 11,966. It hit an intraday high of 12,002 and an intraday low of 11,850.


Positive commentary from the Finance Minister, a bounce-back in banking space, as well as some stable results from India Inc, helped the sentiment. Experts feel that the upside is intact and investors should use dips to accumulate stocks or create long positions.

The action was seen in the S&P BSE Realty index, followed by Bankex, and Metal index while profit-taking was seen in the Consumer Durables, Telecom, and Energy stocks.

"Market clocked a new high based on a commitment from the FM to speed up reforms shortly. Realty & financials outperformed in expectation of new measures while metal stocks gained owing to easing the global trade war,” Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services Ltd told Moneycontrol.

“Better results from index heavyweights kept expectation high for earnings growth, influencing investors to stay in the market,” he said.

Technical View:

Nifty forms a Bullish candle on daily charts

It took support near its 5-Days EMA at 11,904 before bouncing back

For the time being market likely to consolidate in the zone between 12,000 –11,850 levels

In case of an upward breakout above 12,000 levels will open doors for the index to hit record highs above 12,103

Whereas a breach of 11,850 on a closing basis could take the Nifty towards 11,740 - 11,700 levels.

For time being traders are advised to remain focused on stock-specific opportunities by taking a neutral stance on the index, suggest experts.
