The broader market outperformed the frontlines as the Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices gained 1.6 percent each.
The BSE Sensex rallied 248.57 points to 39,683.29 while the Nifty50 rose 80.70 points to 11,924.80, forming a bullish candle on the daily charts indicating a bullish trend. Rangebound trade in the second half of the day's session, however, made traders a bit cautious, experts said.
"The short term trend of the market continues to be positive. Nifty could now encounter minor resistance at 12,050 levels in the next few sessions," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
He said any downward correction from near the hurdle is unlikely to damage the near term uptrend status of the market.
"In terms of the Fibonacci retracement, the bounce back has turned out to be a deep one. It reached 78.6 percent retracement mark today & formed a small distribution over there. Hence, the upside looks quite limited from the current level," Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Senior Technical Analyst, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas said.
