    Sahaj Agrawal, Head of Research- Derivatives at Kotak Securities:

    Nifty has given breakout of the trading range of 15500-15950. An impulsive up-move backed by liquidity has pushed the index towards 16250 mark and is further expected to gain. We continue to remain positive on the broader markets and suggest buying on dips. For the  August series range is seen at 15900-16600 with a positive bias. Banking and Auto stocks are expected to gain momentum while Metal stocks could witness profit booking. Mid-cap space is expected to move incremental with pockets of outperformance.

    Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking 

    The market continued its surge for the second consecutive session and gained nearly a percent. The benchmark opened the gap up, tracking upbeat global cues which further strengthened with strong buying in banking and financials majors. Finally, the Nifty closed at 16,259 levels, up by 0.8%.  On the flip side, most sectoral indices ended in the red due to profit taking at the higher levels. The broader indices too remained under pressure and ended lower in the range of 1-1.2%.
     
    Since the Nifty has almost tested the immediate target of 16,300, we may see a pause in the following session. However, the recent buoyancy in banking and financials would help the index to maintain the positive bias. At the same time, the profit taking in the other sectors and broader indices demands extra caution in the selection of stocks. We advise aligning positions accordingly.

    Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research, Kotak Securities:

    Bulls continue with the positive momentum as benchmark Nifty hit another fresh all time high of 16290.20 after a massive breakout. The uptrend was largely supported by the HDFC twins, private banks and financial stocks. Technically, on daily charts the index has formed breakout continuation formation, which is broadly positive for the market. But intraday charts and momentum indicators suggest temporary overbought situation and traders may take cautious stance near 16300 -16330 level. 

    We are of the view that in next few trading sessions buying on dips and sell on rallies would be the ideal strategy for the day traders. The trade setup suggests that 16200- 16150 would be the key support level for the bulls. On the flip side, the 16300-16330 level could be the immediate hurdle for the market.

    S Hariharan, Head - Sales Trading, Emkay Global Financial Services:  

    Nifty is trading close to technical resistance from a trendline connecting earlier highs in CY2021 (Feb & Jun) – seen in conjunction with non-confirmation of strength in Mid-cap & Small-cap indices, which had hitherto been out-performing headline indices, this suggests a narrow advance, and potential for a short-term pull-back. Long futures open interest for the Retail segment has seen some unwinding over the last week and net long positions are down to mid-Jun levels; this was also evident in cheap roll spreads during July expiry, and points to reluctance to extend leverage on long positions. High-beta sectors appear most vulnerable to a correction in the near-term.

    Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments:

    The markets got off to a flying start but decided to take a breather closer to the 16300 level. If we can get past 16300, the next target for the Nifty should be 16600. The new support for the market is at 15700 and hence any dip or intra day correction can be used to accumulate long positions for higher targets.

    Narendra Solanki, Head- Equity Research (Fundamental), Anand Rathi Shares & Stock Brokers:

    Major equity indices have touched all-time highs today. We have a significant rally in banks, Financials and large cap stocks which made it possible. Although, mid and small cap stocks remained largely muted as leadership was seen from largecap space today. First, the PMI data which came in positive yesterday and comments by FM on GST collection scaling back to 1 lakh crore mark proved sentimentally positive. Also, today's result from PSU bellwhether SBI which were good except higher slippages which was also informed by management that larger part is called back in July also provided much needed push to indices further.
