The market remained in a positive terrain throughout the session and settled with moderate gains on September 14, supported by select banks, auto, and IT stocks. However, the weakness in select FMCG, metals, HDFC twins and Bajaj twins capped upside.
The BSE Sensex rose 69.33 points to 58,247.09, while the Nifty50 hit a fresh record high of 17,438.55 before closing at 17,380, up 24.70 and formed a bearish candle on the daily charts as the closing was lower than opening levels.
"A small negative candle was formed on the daily chart, after a gap-up opening. Technically, this pattern signals a continuation of rangebound action in the market," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.
He further said the rangebound action continued in the market and this action could hint at a possibility of a minor upside breakout of sideways range in the short term. "The upper area of 17,500-17,600 is expected to be a crucial overhead resistance and one may expect profit booking emerging from the new highs. The immediate support is placed 17,260."
The outperformance by broader markets continued as the Nifty Midcap 100 index jumped 1.35 percent and Smallcap 100 index rose 0.29 percent.
