Trade Setup for Monday: Top 15 things to know before Opening Bell

In the next couple of trading sessions, owing to a huge upmove of 5 percent on September 20, there should be some profit booking which should ideally pull down the index

The Indian stock market posted its biggest single-day gains in 10 years on September 20 after Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced a cut in corporate tax rates.

The Sensex closed with a massive gain of 1,921 points, or 5.32 percent, at 38,014.62, with 25 stocks in the green and 5 in the red. Meanwhile, the Nifty50 closed at 11,274.20, up 569 points or 5.32 percent. Among the 50 stocks in the index, 44 logged gains and only six closed with losses.

BSE Midcap outperformed the Sensex, ending with a gain of 6.28 percent. However, the Smallcap index underperformed the benchmark closing 3.94 percent up.


The sharp rally in equities made investors richer by Rs 6.83 lakh crore in a single day as the cumulative market capitalisation of BSE listed firms jumped to Rs 1,45,37,378.01 crore from Rs 1,38,54,439.41 crore on the previous session.

Nifty formed a long bull candle on September 20 which engulfed the range of the last four weeks in a single day. The key overhead resistance of 11,150 levels has been broken on the upside and the Nifty closed above it.

"We observe an upside breakout as per weekly timeframe chart, after the consolidation movement of the last one month. The near term trend of the Nifty seems to have reversed sharply and more upside could be in store in the coming weeks. Having reached the swing high of 11,381 in Friday's session, one may expect next upside targets of 11,600 for the next one-two

weeks," said Nagaraj Shetti – Technical & Derivative Analyst, HDFC securities.

Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, said going forward, the Nifty needs to sustain above its 50-day moving average at 11,117 to confirm strength.

However, in the next couple of trading sessions, owing to this huge up move of 5 percent, there should be some profit booking which should ideally pull down the index, he added.

He advised traders to wait for some correction before initiating long positions without chasing the index at this point in time. On corrections, as of now, it looks that the zone of 11,180–11,140 can be an ideal opportunity to go long.
