March 09, 2022 / 01:04 PM IST

The market gained back its momentum for the first time in the last five consecutive sessions and clocked one percent gains on March 8. The broader markets also joined the rally with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Smallcap 100 indices rising 1.24 percent and 1.51 percent respectively.

All sectors, barring metal, supported the market to snap the four-day losing streak. The BSE Sensex jumped 581 points to 53,424, while the Nifty50 rose 150 points to 16,013 and formed a bullish candle which resembles a Bullish Engulfing kind of pattern on the daily charts.

"The daily price action formed an 'Engulfing Bullish' pattern as short-term trend reversal formation indicated some bounce-back rally in the short term," says Rajesh Palviya, VP - Technical and Derivative Research at Axis Securities.

From current levels, he says 16,000-16,050 remains a crucial level to watch out for. "Any sustainable close above the same may cause upside towards 16,300-16,500 in the coming sessions," Palviya added.

On the other hand, 15,650-15,600 will be a crucial support zone. He advised short-term traders to buy and accumulate stocks with a stop-loss of 15,500.
