Bulls were back in action on August 14 after a day of steep fall. The benchmark indices recouped more than half of losses and gained a percent on delayed US tariffs on some Chinese goods and hope of measures from government to revive economy.

The BSE Sensex rallied 353.37 points to 37,311.53 while the Nifty50 climbed 103.50 points to 11,029.40 and formed small bullish candle which resembles a Bearish Harami kind of formation of daily scale.

The broader markets also gained momentum with the Nifty Midcap index rising 1 percent and Smallcap index climbing 0.7 percent. All sectoral indices closed in green except Pharma.


According to the pivot charts, key support level is placed at 10,950.6, followed by 10,871.8. If the index starts moving upward, key resistance levels to watch out for are 11,093.2 and 11,157.

Nifty Bank closed at 28,019.20, up 290.10 points on August 14. The important pivot level, which will act as crucial support for the index, is placed at 27,794.9, followed by 27,570.6. On the upside, key resistance levels are placed at 28,175.3 and 28,331.4.
