The market rebounded to close in the positive territory on May 5 with the Nifty scaling above 14,600 levels after the RBI announced liquidity measures for small finance banks, MSMEs and microfinance institutions to support the economy and businesses to tide over COVID-19 crisis.
The BSE Sensex jumped 424.04 points to 48,677.55, while the Nifty50 rose 121.40 points to 14,617.90 and formed Inside Bar kind of pattern on the daily charts, driven by banking & financials, IT, metals and pharma stocks.
"Since the three consecutive sessions, the index continues to face resistance around 14,650-14,700 levels which remains a crucial resistance zone to watch out for. On the daily chart, the Nifty continues to hold its 100-day SMA (14,499) which acts as support on the short term charts," Rajesh Palviya, Head - Technical and Derivative Research at Axis Securities told Moneycontrol.
"Any sustainable move above 14,700 may cause momentum towards 14,800-14,850 levels. On the downside, any violation of an intraday support zone of 14,500 levels may cause profit booking towards 14,400-14,300 levels," Palviya said.
On the broader markets front, the Nifty Midcap 100 index gained 1 percent and Smallcap 100 index rose 0.41 percent.
