Led by gains in auto and banking stocks, benchmark indices on March 5 ended over 1 percent higher.

The 30-share BSE Sensex surged 378.73 points to end at 36,442.54 while  Nifty50 ended 124 points higher at 10,987.50.

"The Nifty index closed above 200 DMA & all short term moving averages. It has managed to sustain above 61.8 percent retracement levels of the previous swing which is placed around 10,915 levels indicating prices can extend further towards the recent high of 11,118 levels," Shabbir Kayyumi, Head - Technical and Derivative Research at Narnolia Financial Advisors, told Moneycontrol.


He expects markets to trade higher unless it breaches 10,915 decisively on the lower side. Any decisive move above the psychological level of 11,000 will push the index higher towards 11,118 levels, he said.

He said sustained trade above 200-DMA (10,860) will resume the up move taking the index higher towards immediate resistance zone of 10,980-11,000.

Moreover, a close below the strong support (10,640) will push prices lower towards 10,550, he added.

The broader markets continued to hogged the limelight with the Midcap and Smallcap indices rallying 2.4 percent and 4 percent respectively, following strong breadth.

"The market breadth has improved on the back of the market participants sensing the possibility of the incumbent government retaining power, which naturally provides policy stability," Devang Mehta, Head – Equity Advisory at Centrum Wealth Management said.

All sectoral indices closed in the green, barring IT, which fell over a percent.
