Once the Nifty takes out the swing high of 10,774 then the index can march towards 11,000-11,140 in the short term, according to Gaurav Ratnaparkhi of Sharekhan.
The market opened flat but an afternoon rally helped it gain for the second consecutive session on November 27, forming bullish candle on the daily charts.
The rally was largely driven by index heavyweights Reliance Industries (up 1.66 percent), HDFC Bank (0.7 percent), HDFC (0.9 percent), Infosys (2.81 percent) and TCS (2.39 percent).
The 30-share BSE Sensex was up 159.06 points at 35,513.14 while the 50-share NSE Nifty closed 57 points higher at 10,685.60 and is now comfortably above its crucial short-term moving averages.
"Nifty index finally negated its lower highs-lower lows formation after four trading sessions and continued its positive momentum. It formed a bullish candle on a daily scale which suggests that bulls are not loosening their grip in the market," Chandan Taparia, Associate Vice President | Analyst-Derivatives, Motilal Oswal Financial Services told Moneycontrol.
Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Senior Technical Analyst, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas said the minor degree correction, which the index witnessed in the last week, looks done at the recent low of 10,489 & the Nifty looks poised to take out the swing high of 10,774 in order to form the next leg up.
Once the Nifty takes out the swing high of 10,774 then the index can march towards 11,000-11,140 in the short term, he added.
Thus, he advised traders to position themselves on the long side of the trade and can increase their exposure on the buy side once the Nifty crosses 10,774.
Despite this bullishness for the second day in a row advance-decline ratio still remains a concern as it is still favouring bears for the second day in a row.
About 921 shares declined against 792 advancing shares on the National Stock Exchange.
India VIX fell sharply by 10.94 percent to 18.17 levels. Sudden fall in VIX might provide short term stability in the market.
