The market witnessed sharp rebound on March 26 and had a good start to the April series backed by buying and short covering in banking & financials, auto, FMCG and metals stocks.

The market will open on Tuesday after a long weekend.

The BSE Sensex climbed 568.38 points, or 1.17 percent, to close at 49,008.50, while the Nifty50 rose 182.40 points, or 1.27 percent, to 14,507.30 and witnessed Doji kind of formation on daily charts as the closing was near opening levels. During the week ended March 26, the index fell 1.6 percent and formed small bearish candle on the daily charts.

"Nifty on the weekly chart has bounce back from the weekly 10-period EMA (exponential moving average) during the week. The moving average is now at 14,590 and the Nifty closed just below it, as per week's close. Previously, such downside violations of this EMA have offered strong upside bounce in the subsequent weeks," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.

"The next upside level to be watched out for is 14,700. On the dips, 14,400-14,350 could offer support for the markets," he said.
