The market rebounded sharply after a long weekend and recouped all previous day's losses to close with a percent gains on December 1, especially after better-than-expected GDP numbers for Q2FY21 and November auto sales data.
The buying in technology, metals, pharma, auto, and select banking and financials helped the BSE Sensex rise 505.72 points to 44,655.44, while the Nifty50 rose 140 points to 13,109 and formed small bodied bullish candle, which resembles Hanging Man kind of pattern on the daily charts.
"A small positive candle was formed with long lower shadow. Technically, this pattern could indicate a buy on dips opportunity in the market. Recently, we observe formation of few lower shadows in the daily candles, which signal that bulls are not willing to give up, despite new all-time highs and overhead resistances," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, told Moneycontrol.
"The short-term trend of Nifty continues to be positive. Further upside above 13,145 is expected to negate couple of bearish patterns, as per daily and weekly timeframe chart and that is expected to open the next upside levels of 13,500 in the near term. Immediate support is placed at 12,960," he said.
The broader markets continued its run up seen last week as the Nifty MidCap and SmallCap indices gained nearly a percent each.
