The market snapped six-day losing streak and rebounded sharply to close above 11,000 on the Nifty with more than 2 percent gains on September 25, the first day of October series. The reports of likely stimulus package from government ahead of festive season lifted sentiment.
The BSE Sensex surged 835.06 points or 2.28 percent to 37,388.66, driven by rally across sectors.
The Nifty50 climbed 244.80 points or 2.27 percent to 11,050.30 and formed bullish candle on the daily charts, but lost 4 percent for the week and witnessed bearish candle formation on the weekly scale.
"The larger up move as per the positive sequence of higher tops and bottoms has been broken recently and Nifty shifted into a downward corrective action by the way of lower tops and bottoms in the last couple of weeks. Hence, last Thursday's low of 10,790 could be considered as a new lower bottom of the sequence and Friday's upmove could be a considered as a part of new lower top. Hence, further upside can't be ruled out by early next week before showing another round of weakness from the highs," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
Any upside bounce up to 11,350-11,400 could be a sell on rise opportunity in the market and the expected decline from the highs could retest the lower 10,800 levels in the near term, he said, adding immediate support is placed at 10,900.
The broader markets too participated in the run, with the Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices rising nearly 3 percent each.
