The market closed higher on February 20, the first positive close in nine consecutive sessions, with the Nifty holding 10,700 levels on positive global cues and relief rally in beaten-down sectors.

The 30-share BSE Sensex rallied 403.65 points or 1.14 percent to 35,756.26 while the 50-share NSE Nifty gained 131.10 points or 1.24 percent to close at 10,735.50 and formed bullish candle on the daily charts after nine bearish candles.

"Yesterday, Nifty took support from the previous swing low and lower Bollinger band placed around 10,580 levels whereas today's bounce back snapped the 8-day losing streak, forming a trend reversal morning star pattern; however, a confirmation is still pending," Shabbir Kayyumi, Head - Technical & Derivative Research at Narnolia Financial Advisors told Moneycontrol.

Close

He said sustained trade above today's high (10,753) will resume the up move taking the index higher towards immediate resistance zone of 200 DMA placed around 10,859 levels.

A close below the strong support (10,640) will push prices lower towards 10,580 levels, he said.

The broader markets also traded in line with benchmarks. The Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices gained 1 percent each with positive market breadth.

Sahaj Agrawal of Kotak Securities said investors can gradually accumulate select stocks for an expected breakout on the higher side.
