Indian market touched fresh record highs on the Muhurat Trading day. The S&P BSE Sensex is now comfortably trading above 43,000 while Nifty50 came close to 12,900 levels.

Experts are of the view that upside remains limited for the benchmark indices but there will be plenty of stock-specific action. Multi-year bull run has started as the economy is showing signs of improvement.

In an analysts' poll conducted by Moneycontrol, as many as 50 percent of the respondents said Sensex will trade above 43,000 while 37.50 percent expect Sensex to see some consolidation and trade in the range of 42,273-43,000.

For Nifty, as many as 62.50 percent of respondents expect it to trade between 12,400 and 13,000 for Samvat 2077. The remaining 37.50 percent expect Nifty to trade above 13,000.

“In our sense, this is just the beginning of a ‘Mega Multi-year Bull Run’. With a broader view, if we take reciprocal retracement of the entire fall from previous high to march lows, we have just crossed 100% and the next destination is around 127% retracement that comes around 13700 – 13800,” Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst Technical and Derivatives, Angel Broking Ltd told Moneycontrol.


“If things fall in place perfectly for the bulls around the mentioned milestones, we never know, this projection can even get extended towards the ‘Golden Ratio’ of 161% placed around 15000- 15,300,” he said.

Chavan further added that we hope that our hypothesis turns into a reality by the next SAMVAT and now, we take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy and most importantly a healthy Diwali.

The shift of range on the upside has led to a strong momentum rally towards Rs361. Currently, it has taken a pause around the three-digit Gann number of 361, which indicates hiatus in an ongoing uptrend.

Such a phase in an uptrending counters tends to result in the resumption of prevailing rally. Corrective move towards Rs335-340 should be considered as a buying opportunity. On the upside, the stock has the potential to rally towards Rs450 zone.
