The next important resistance is placed at 11,930-11,950 levels, which is an upper area of the recent consolidation, Nagaraj Shetti of HDFC Securities said.
The market staged a spectacular performance with the Nifty50 reclaiming the 11,800-point mark on November 3 following a rally by global peers after economic data points were released. Banking & financials outperformed Nifty50 by wide margin for a second consecutive session amid an improvement in the business outlook.
The BSE Sensex closed above the 40,000 mark, rising 503.55 points or 1.27 percent to 40,261.13 points, while the Nifty50 gained 144.30 points or 1.24 percent to 11,813.50 points, and formed a bullish candle on the daily charts.
"This pattern could be a signal of short-term bottom reversal in the market and the unfilled upside gap could be considered as a intraday bullish breakaway gap," Nagaraj Shetti, technical research analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
The overall market breadth has turned up slightly with broad market indices like NSE Midcap 100 closing higher by 0.70 percent and Smallcap 100 closed on a flat note. This could be a minor cause of worry for the market to sustain the highs, he said.
"Initial resistance of 11,750 levels has been broken on the upside and and Nifty sustained above it. The next important resistance is placed at 11,930-11,950 levels, which is an upper area of the recent consolidation, he added.
