The market gained for the eighth consecutive session with the benchmark indices hitting a fresh record high on November 11 as bulls seem to be not in a position to let the bears enter Dalal Street. The rally across sectors barring PSU banks pushed the benchmark indices higher.
The BSE Sensex rallied 316.02 points to end at a record closing high of 43,593.67, while the Nifty50 climbed 118.10 points to 12,749.20 and formed a bullish candle which resembles a Hanging Man kind of pattern on the daily charts, though it was a roller-coaster ride intraday.
"The emergence of high intraday volatility in the last two sessions could signal the possibility of a confused state of mind among participants at the new highs. Hence, there is a possibility of a halt of this sharp trended upmove in the next 1-2 sessions. But still, there is no indication of any reversal pattern at the highs," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
"Nifty is now nearing a crucial long term resistance of around 12,800-12,850 levels (ascending long term trend line on the monthly chart, connected from a tops of August 2018 and June 2019. This is going to be strong overhead resistance for the market and the selling pressure is expected to emerge from the highs," he said.
Long positions need to be protected with appropriate stoploss, he advised.
The broader markets' underperformance to frontliners continued as the Nifty Midcap index was up 0.4 percent and Smallcap index gained 0.7 percent.
