The Nifty 50, after a sharp gap-up opening, witnessed sustained buying interest throughout the trading session to extend its gains above the psychological 11,500-mark on September 14 ahead of the Prime Minister's meeting with top government officials to review the current economic scenario.

The index held on to its crucial support placed at 11,380 levels and closed sharply higher, forming a bullish candle on the daily candlestick charts and 'Hammer' pattern on the weekly charts.

A Hammer, which is a bullish reversal pattern, is formed after a decline. A Hammer consists of no upper shadow, a small body, and long lower shadow, the latter of which signifies that it has tested support where demand was located and then bounced back.

The Nifty 50 opened sharply higher at 11,443.50 and maintained 11,400 levels throughout the session. The index extended rally as the day progressed and hit an intraday high of 11,523.25.

It closed 145.30 points or 1.28 percent higher at 11,515.20, but on weekly basis, it lost 0.6 percent on top of a 0.8 percent loss in the previous week.

"Nifty 50 appears to have witnessed a sustained buying after the gap up opening before signing off the session with a decent bullish candle," Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research and Trading Advisory, told Moneycontrol.

Technically speaking as multiple buy signals are visible on lower time frame charts post the September 14 price action, the trajectory may continue to remain positive for the next couple of trading sessions provided Nifty 50 sustains above the 11,380 levels on closing basis, he said.

He added, the last two sessions of strong recovery chalked out a perfect Hammer formation on weekly charts, which should be positive going forward. "In such a scenario logical target for Nifty50 shall get extended upto 11,650 kind of levels if positive momentum sustains as Monday's move is going to be influenced by the outcome of the ‘week end meeting over economy," he said.

Nevertheless, he advised traders to focus on larger technical levels mentioned on closing basis to gauge the short term trend and maintain a stop below 11,380 levels.

In case Nifty 50 closes below 11,380 levels, then chances of new swing low beyond 11,250 could remain strengthened, Mazhar added.

India VIX fell by 3.24 percent to 13.78. Decline in VIX could provide some stability in the market, experts said.
