Nagaraj Shetti of HDFC Securities said the sharp upmove seems to have confirmed a near term bottom reversal in the Nifty and the market is now ready for a reasonable upside bounce in the next few sessions.
Bulls were back in action on Dalal Street with the Nifty 50 reclaiming 11,000 and Sensex climbing above 37,000 levels on August 8. Media reports suggesting a potential rollback of surcharge on the super-rich and a delay in vehicle registration fees by a year lifted sentiment.
The BSE Sensex rallied 636.86 points or 1.74 percent to close at 37,327.36 while the Nifty 50 rose 177 points or 1.63 percent to 11,032.50, forming a bullish candle on daily charts.
"The rebound was largely on the expected lines and we feel Nifty could face immediate hurdle at 11,100 and next around 11,250. Also, traders should focus more on stock selection as we are seeing limited participation," Ajit Mishra, VP - Research at Religare Broking told Moneycontrol.
Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said the sharp up move seems to have confirmed a near term bottom reversal in the Nifty and the market is now ready for a reasonable upside bounce in the next few sessions.
A decisive/sustainable up move above the key overhead resistance of 11,100 level could open up space for a further up move towards 11,300-11,350 levels by next week, according to Shetti.
All sectoral indices closed in green with Auto rallying the most with 3 percent gains. Auto, FMCG, IT, Metal and Realty indices gained 1-2 percent.
The broader markets underperformed frontliners with the Nifty Midcap index rising 0.7 percent and Smallcap index climbing a percent.
