The market witnessed profit booking after hitting fresh record high levels in early trade and closed the session with moderate gains on December 3. The selling in HDFC Group and select technology stocks capped the gains, but the rally in auto, metals, pharma and PSU banks stocks supported the market.
The BSE Sensex rose 14.61 points to 44,632.65, while the Nifty50 rose 20.10 points to 13,133.90 and formed a bearish candle on the daily charts.
"A reasonable negative candle was formed at the new highs and the market is now placed at the edge of the support of previous swing highs of 13,140-13,130 levels as per the concept of change in polarity. But, it failed to show any convincing upmove from the support. This action could be a cause of concern at the highs," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, told Moneycontrol.
"The negative divergence pattern continued on the daily chart (higher high in the Nifty and lower high in the RSI), which could signal tiredness of the market at the new highs and the profit booking could emerge from near all-time highs," he said, adding immediate supports could be watched at 13,000 levels and on the upper side, 13,250 could act as a key overhead resistance.
The broader markets outperformed benchmark indices with the Midcap and Smallcap indices rising 0.6 percent each.
