The market extended previous day's gains in the morning and rallied over 100 points on the Nifty50, but erased all those gains in afternoon to close flat on November 15. FMCG, IT and Pharma stocks supported the market, however, there was selling in Metal, and select banking & financials stocks.
The BSE Sensex rose 32.02 points to 60,718.71, while the Nifty50 was up 6.70 points at 18,109.50 and formed a bearish candle on the daily charts as the closing was lower than opening levels.
"On daily charts, Nifty has formed a small bearish candle, which indicates temporary weakness. However, at the same time, the index has been consistently taking support near the 20-day SMA (simple moving average - 18,068). Also, the index has maintained a higher bottom formation which is broadly positive," says Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail) at Kotak Securities.
"We are of the view that the 20-day SMA would act as a trend decider level for the bulls, and above the same, the uptrend formation could continue up to 18,200-18,275 levels. On the other hand, the dismissal of 18,040 or 20-day SMA could possibly open another correction wave till 18,000-17,925," he adds.
There was a mixed trend in broader markets. The Nifty Midcap 100 index was up 0.32 percent and the Smallcap 100 index fell 0.25 percent.
