Trade setup for Tuesday: Top 15 things to know before Opening Bell

Nifty is currently placed at the minor trend line resistance around 11,250 and this hurdle is expected to be broken on the upside by the next session, Nagaraj Shetti of HDFC Securities has said.

September 29, 2020 / 07:03 AM IST

The market rallied more than 1.5 percent on September 28, in addition to nearly 3 percent gains seen in the previous session. The hope of a stimulus package and measures by the government to boost the economy lifted sentiment.

The buying continued across sectors with Bank, Auto and Metal indices rising 3 percent each.

The BSE Sensex climbed 592.97 points or 1.59 percent to close at 37,981.63, while the Nifty50 rose 177.20 points or 1.60 percent to 11,227.50 and formed a bullish candle on the daily charts for the second consecutive session.

"A long bull candle was formed with opening upside gap and the said up gap remains unfilled. This is a positive indication and if this gap remains unfilled for the next 2-3 sessions, then that could mean more upside for the near term," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.

"Nifty is currently placed at the minor trend line resistance around 11,250 and this hurdle is expected to be broken on the upside by next session. After this hurdle, one may expect 11,350-11,400 as crucial overhead resistance for the near term," he said.


"The bearish negative pattern of lower tops and bottoms is intact and present upmove could be a part of a new lower top formation. We need reversal at the lower highs to call this as a lower top reversal pattern," he added.

The broader markets also joined the party, as the Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices gained 3 percent and 3.6 percent respectively.
