The bull run continued for the sixth consecutive session on November 9, taking the market to fresh record highs following positive global cues and certainty in the United States with the Democratic Party's Joe Biden getting a clear majority to become the 46th president.
The rally seen across sectors helped the benchmark indices end at a record closing high. The BSE Sensex jumped 704.37 points or 1.68 percent to 42,597.43, while the Nifty50 gained 197.50 points or 1.61 percent at 12,461 and formed a bullish candle on the daily charts.
"A long bull candle was formed on Monday with unfilled opening upside gap. We observe three back-to-back opening upside gaps, which are unfilled or partially filled. Hence, Monday's upside gap could be considered as a bullish run away gap and this could indicate more upside in the near term," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
"Though Nifty moved up, there is no indication of any reversal pattern at the highs. Daily 14 period RSI is placed at 69 and this has more room up to 75 levels and higher as per its movement in a bullish trend. The overall chart pattern (intraday/daily/weekly) indicates more new highs in the coming sessions. The upside targets to be watched around 12,750-12,800 levels in the next 1-2 weeks," he said.
But the same trend was not seen in the broader markets as the Nifty Midcap index was up 0.87 percent and Smallcap gained 0.33 percent.
