The market mood remained positive for the fourth consecutive session with the Nifty 50 closing a tad below 11,950 level on July 4. The index rallied more than 150 points in four straight days ahead of Union Budget.

Volatility is highly likely on Budget day on July 5 but any strong surprise can take it towards a record high of around 12,100. Otherwise, there could be profit booking, experts feel.

The BSE Sensex gained 68.81 points to close at 39,908.06 while the Nifty 50 rose 30 points to 11,946.80 and formed small bullish candle on daily charts.


"The index formed a small bullish candle on the daily scale and continued forming higher highs from past four trading sessions which indicate overall bias could remain positive to rangebound," Chandan Taparia, Associate Vice President | Analyst-Derivatives at Motilal Oswal Financial Services told Moneycontrol.

He said now the index has to continue to hold above 11,850 zones to witness an upmove towards 12,000 then 12,040 zones while supports are shifting higher at 11,850 then 11,777 zones.

Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said all eyes on Union Budget 2019, which is going to be a key trigger for the market direction.

"We are likely to see an emergence of high volatility in the market in coming sessions," he added.

The broader markets ended mixed with the Nifty Midcap index falling 0.03 percent while Smallcap index gained 0.5 percent. Among sectors, PSU Bank index gained over a percent on the hope of a bigger amount towards recapitalisation from the government in Union Budget.
