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

On Tuesday, the market would rally if it crosses 13,600 levels at the beginning, and in that case, we could even see the levels of 13,700 or 13,750, says Shrikant Chouhan of Kotak Securities.

The market turned lower after hitting a life high in early trade but managed to recoup those losses to end at a record closing high on December 14, supported by positive global cues and October industrial output data.

The BSE Sensex climbed 154.45 points to 46,253.46, while the Nifty50 rose 44.30 points to 13,558.20 and formed a Doji kind of pattern on the daily charts for the third consecutive session as closing was near opening levels.

"Since the last 3 days, the market is closing nearer to opening levels, which is an indication of the indecisive nature of the market. The most surprising part of the day was that the Bank Nifty traded in a narrow range of 200 points. Such type of activity gives birth to sudden volatility," Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities told Moneycontrol.

On Tuesday, "the market would rally if it crosses 13,600 levels at the beginning and in that case we could even see the levels of 13,700 or 13,750. The support has shifted to 13,470 from 13,400 levels," he said.

The broader markets outperformed benchmark indices as the Nifty Midcap index was up 0.66 percent and Smallcap gained 0.82 percent.
