On October 4, the market recouped all its previous day's losses and climbed more than 2 percent, tracking positive global cues. The rally across sectors also boosted northward journey of the market.
The BSE Sensex surged 1,277 points, or 2.25 percent, to 58,065, while the Nifty50 jumped 387 points to 17,274 and formed bullish candle on the daily charts.
"A long bull candle was formed on the daily chart with gap up opening (body gap, not a western gap). This indicates an upside breakout of the larger consolidation movement around 16,800-17,200 levels," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.
The immediate hurdle of previous opening gap of September 26 has been filled on Tuesday at 17,290 levels. This is positive indication and a sustainable move above 17,300 levels could be a sharper one towards the next crucial resistances of around 17,600 and next 18,000 levels in the near term.
Nifty has now respected the important lower support of 16,800 levels, as per the concept of change in polarity. Immediate support is placed at 17,150 levels, the market expert said.
The broader markets also traded strong with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Smallcap 100 indices rising 2.6 percent and 1.76 percent, respectively, while the India VIX, the fear index fell by 8.4 percent to 19.57 levels, making the trend favourable for bulls.
