The Nifty 50 continued to gain for the fifth consecutive session and reclaimed 10,900 levels intraday on December 17, driven by buying across major sectors and positive Asian cues.

The 30-share BSE Sensex rallied 307 points to 36,270.07 while the Nifty 50 gained 82.90 points to close at 10,888.40, forming a bullish candle on the daily charts.

As the Nifty has reached the 10,800-10,900 zone, a bit of profit taking amid consolidation could be possible especially ahead of Federal Reserve's last policy meeting of the year, experts said.


India Volatility Index fell by 4.32 percent to 14.50 levels. VIX has seen a sharp cut of 32.50 percent in last five sessions which suggests now bulls are getting a grip on the market with the expectation of limited downside.

According to Pivot charts, the key support level is placed at 10,855.3, followed by 10,822.3. If the index starts moving upward, key resistance levels to watch out are 10,910.8 and then 10,933.3.

The Nifty Bank index closed at 27,015.80, up 189.80 points on December 17. The important Pivot level, which will act as crucial support for the index, is placed at 26,932.46, followed by 26,849.13. On the upside, key resistance levels are placed at 27,075.26, followed by 27,134.73.
