The market snapped out of its six-day losing streak with the benchmark indices closing marginally higher amid volatility on July 26, which was partly led by short covering and long buildup. The pull-back rally seen on July 26 was after benchmark indices shed more than 3.5 percent over the previous six consecutive sessions, driven by banking and financials and auto stocks.
The BSE Sensex was up 51.81 points at 37,882.79, while the Nifty50 gained 32.10 points at 11,284.30 and formed a small bullish candle on daily charts.
The index fell 1.18 percent for the week and formed a bearish candle for the third consecutive week, which indicated that the bears still have the upper-hand on Dalal Street. Hence the pull-back rally seen on July 26 can be extended smartly only if the index closes decisively above its 11,300 levels in the coming sessions, experts feel.
The broader markets were mixed in trade once again with the Nifty Midcap index gaining 0.6 percent while the Smallcap index was down 0.05 percent. For the week, indices lost 1.6 percent and 2.5 percent respectively.
According to the pivot charts, the key support level is placed at 11,227, followed by 11,169.7. If the index starts moving upward, the key resistance levels to watch for out are 11,324.6 and 11,364.9.
The Nifty Bank closed at 29,325.30, up by 282.25 points on July 26. The important pivot level, which will act as crucial support for the index, is placed at 29,086.84, followed by 28,848.37. On the upside, key resistance levels are placed at 29,471.44, and 29,617.57.
