Shrikant Chouhan of Kotak Securities says for next few days, 10,850 will be the support level and 11,150 will act as resistance for Nifty.
Benchmark indices extended rally on September 9 but failed to recoup in complete the losses seen the week before. Banking and financials, auto and FMCG stocks pushed indices higher. The broader markets participated in the move, with the Nifty Midcap index rising more than a percent.
The Sensex climbed 163.68 points to 37,145.45, while the Nifty rose 56.80 points to 11,003 and formed a bullish candle on daily charts.
Experts expect the momentum to continue and feel the closing above 11,150 could spark a sharp upside.
"The short-term trend of the Nifty continues to be positive. The present upside momentum is likely to pull the market towards the crucial resistance zone of around 11,120-11,150 levels in the next few sessions," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, told Moneycontrol.
He said a decisive/sustainable move only above 11,150 would bring a sharp upside movement in the market and could open up a potential pattern target on the upside. Failure to sustain the highs could result in a minor downward correction, Shetti added.
Shrikant Chouhan, Senior Vice-President (Equity Technical Research) at Kotak Securities, said for next few days, 10,850 would be the support level and 11,150 would act as resistance. Above 11,150, the Nifty would enter into a medium-term uptrend, he added.
All sectoral indices, barring IT, saw buying interest with the Nifty Bank, auto, FMCG and financial services gaining 0.7-0.9 percent.
