The BSE Sensex gained another 216 points on March 13 to close at 37,752.17, taking total gains to over 2,200 points in three consecutive weeks. Banking and financials drove the rally.

The Nifty 50 hit fresh six-month high and ended the session at 11,341.70, a gain of 40.50 points from previous settlement, but overall as it was a consolidation day, the index formed 'Hanging Man' kind of pattern on the daily charts.

"A small body positive candle has been formed with long lower shadow. Technically, this formation indicates a 'Hanging Man' type pattern. Normally, this pattern signals word of caution for long positions at the highs. But, confirmation of weakness is required to call this as a reversal," Nagraj Shetti, Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.


Hence, the short term trend of Nifty continues to be positive and next upside resistance to be watched at 11,450 levels, he said.

India VIX increased by 1.18 percent to 15.27 levels. VIX closed higher after the declines of last seven-eight trading sessions but overall lower volatility is giving comfort to bulls.

Shabbir Kayyumi, Head of Technical Research at Narnolia Financial Advisors said going ahead the possibility of a small retracement has increased as a majority of oscillators have reached overbought levels.

On the downside, a decisive breach of 11,270 levels will push Nifty to 5-day Exponential Moving Average placed around 11,205 while on the upside, the next target for Nifty is 11,444-11,475, he added.

However, the broader markets caught in a bear trap after a rally for the last few sessions. The Nifty Midcap index was down 0.55 percent and Smallcap declined 0.2 percent.
