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

Pivot charts place key support level for Nifty at 11,967.43 and 12,086.83 as key resistance if the index continues moving up.

Equity benchmarks ended in the green on December 4 supported by buying at the fag end of trade on the eve of RBI's monetary policy meet outcome.

Investor sentiment turned positive on news that the US and China were close to signing a trade deal despite the recent heated rhetoric.

Sensex climbed 0.43 percent to close at 40,850, while Nifty reclaimed the psychological mark of 12,000 and closed 0.41 percent higher at 12,043. The BSE Midcap and Smallcap indices ended 0.52 percent and 0.33 percent higher, respectively.


"The market is cautiously awaiting RBI monetary policy outcome tomorrow where it expects the central bank to deliver its sixth rate cut of the year despite higher inflation. A 25 bps rate cut is already factored in by the market and investors would watch out for any surprise on that front and the commentary on the future path," Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services.

"Technically, Nifty formed a bullish candle similar to the bullish piercing line pattern on the daily scale. It took support around the lower end of the channel and 20-EMA on the daily chart for the second consecutive session. Now, it has to hold above 12,000 to witness an up move towards 12,158 and then towards 12,250. Strong support for Nifty is placed at 11,935-11,950 and

11,880 levels,” Khemka said.
