The market remained on a strong footing as bulls retained their control over Dalal Street for the seventh consecutive session on October 9. Buying in banking & financials amid additional liquidity and regulatory measures announced by the Reserve Bank of India to boost economic recovery aided market sentiments.
The BSE Sensex climbed 326.82 points to 40,509.49, while the Nifty50 jumped 79.60 points to 11,914.20, the highest closing level since February 20 this year and formed a bullish candle on daily as well as weekly charts. The index gained over 4 percent during the week.
"The recent upside breakout of important trend line resistance (11,600) as per weekly timeframe (according to change in polarity), the negation of Bearish Engulfing pattern of daily and weekly timeframe chart (by closing above 11,794) and the negation of Doji pattern of Thursday as per daily timeframe chart - all these positive pieces of evidence are pointing towards a strong placement for the market to go up further," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, told Moneycontrol.
Technically, such negations of bearish patterns more often results in a continuation of sharp up trended moves in the underlying, he feels. The upside target to be watched for the coming week ist 12,250, while immediate support is placed at 11,800, he said.
