The market hit a fresh six-month high and closed the March series expiry day on a strong note on March 28. The Nifty50 crossed its recent swing high and moved closer to 11,600 levels while the Bank Nifty ends at record closing high on hope of rate cut in April policy meeting and recapitalisation of PSU banks.

The BSE Sensex rallied 412.84 or 1.08 percent to 38,545.72 while the Nifty50 climbed 125 points or 1.09 percent to 11,570 and formed bullish candle on daily charts.

In March series, BSE Sensex surged 7.5 percent and Nifty50 jumped 7.2 percent, the biggest gains in a series since January 2015.

"Nifty witnessed a sharp comeback today, after a choppy trend of the last session. A long bull candle was formed today at a new swing high of 11,588 levels. This pattern is indicating a strength of an upmove and lack of profit booking at the highs," Nagaraj Shetti – Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst, HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.

He said the market is expected to form a new higher top above 11,650 levels, in the next few sessions.

"Also, Nifty has formed the cup and handle pattern on the hourly chart suggesting an upside target of 11,780. The current bullish thesis will be under question mark only if the index closes below 11,488," he added.

The market breadth was positive throughout day with advance decline ratio almost near 2:1. The Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices also gained a percent each.
