Driven by buying in banking, auto, metals and pharma stocks, Sensex on June 20 closed 489 points higher to end at 39,602 while Nifty too ended 140.30 points higher at 11,831.80.

"Technically, this pattern signals a sharp comeback of bulls from the lows. The crucial overhead resistance of 11,780-11,800 (as per the concept of change in polarity-previous broken support) has been broken on the upside and Nifty closed above it," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, told Moneycontrol.

He said the short term trend seems to have reversed and a follow-through upmove from here could change the near term sentiment towards positive.


Jayant Manglik, President - Retail Distribution, Religare Broking, said movement on stock specific front is expected to keep traders busy. "Nifty should hold above 11,800 for further upmove. Traders are advised to maintain positive yet cautious approach."

The broader markets also participated in the run with Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices rising over 1.5 percent each.
