The market had a historic day as the BSE Sensex closed above the 60,000-mark for the first time on the September 24 despite the weakness in global peers. The upward momentum was backed by buying in IT, select banking & financials and auto stocks.
Both the benchmark indices ended at record closing high. On September 24, the BSE Sensex jumped 163.11 points to 60,048.47, while the Nifty50 rose 30.25 points to 17,853.20 and formed bearish candle on the daily charts as the closing was lower than opening levels. During the week, the BSE Sensex gained 1.75 percent and Nifty50 rose 1.5 percent, continuing uptrend for fifth consecutive week.
"Trading was mostly rangebound with a positive bias but the highlight of the trade was Sensex breaching the psychological 60,000-mark. Benchmark Nifty has formed a robust higher high and higher low formation which is broadly positive. The important point is the index successfully cleared the resistance of 17,800 and is comfortably trading above the same," said Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail) at Kotak Securities.
For the Nifty50, he feels 17,775-17,700 could be the important support levels. On the flip side, 18,000 and 18,200 could act as a major resistance level, he said.
Chouhan advised that contra traders can take a long bet near 17,700 with a strict 16,650 support stop loss, while partial profit booking is advisable between 18,100 to 18,200 level.
The broader markets ended mixed with the Nifty Midcap 100 index falling 0.78 percent and Smallcap 100 index up 0.12 percent.
