Nagaraj Shetti of HDFC Securities said the short term trend of Nifty continued to be rangebound.
The market was rangebound from the opening tick but gained strength later helping benchmark indices close half a percent higher on November 19. Telecom and banks stocks led the late gains. However, the weakness in auto, FMCG and metals stocks capped upside.
The BSE Sensex rose 185.51 points to 40,469.70 while the Nifty 50 climbed 55.60 points to 11,940.10, forming bullish candle on daily charts, but the market breadth was negative.
About 1,379 shares declined against 1,144 advancing shares on the BSE.
"The short term trend of Nifty continues to be rangebound. The Nifty is expected to challenge the key overhead resistance of 12,000 mark again in the next 1-2 sessions," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
He said a decisive/sustainable move above this hurdle could only open renewed buying enthusiasm in the market. An emergence of selling pressure from near the resistance could drag Nifty down to 11,850-11,825 levels again in the near term," he added.
The broader markets also gained momentum, with Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices rising 0.2-0.3 percent but underperforming frontliners.
"We continue to remain cautious on the markets in the near-term as it hovering around peak levels," Ajit Mishra, Vice President - Research at Religare Broking said.
