The VIX closing below crucial levels of 15 & USD/INR showing strength by trading below 70 a dollar support the current rally, he said, pointing out that Nifty has managed to close above stiff resistance of previous swing high level of 11,118.
"As long as the index is trading above 11,050, we maintain buy on dip strategy while immediate resistance lies around 11,200-11,250 levels," he added.
Volatility has been falling over last seven trading sessions and lower volatility is providing comfort to bull zones to extend momentum and the Options band signifies a shift in the higher trading range between 10,985 to 11,300 zones, experts said.
Jayant Manglik, President - Retail Distribution, Religare Broking told Moneycontrol the breakout in the benchmark index, after four-month long consolidation phase, has further boosted the sentiment.
Stock selection, he believes remains the key as participation is limited mainly to the quality counters. "Nifty has the potential of testing 11,300-11,400 zone in near future."
The broader markets continued its sharp run with the Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices gaining more than 2 percent each on top of 2.5 percent and 4 percent rally, respectively in the previous week.
