The key support levels for the Nifty are placed at 15,397.1, followed by 15,358.5. If the index moves up, the key resistance levels to watch out for are 15,472 and 15,508.3.
The market extended gains for the sixth consecutive session to end at a record closing high on May 28, the first day of the June series, driven by falling dollar and COVID-19 infections. The Nifty50 crossed its previous record high levels, but the Sensex is yet to hit a fresh all-time high. Reliance Industries, select banking & financials, auto and FMCG stocks supported the rally.
The BSE Sensex climbed 307.66 points to close at 51,422.88, while the Nifty50 rose 97.80 points to 15,435.70 and formed a Doji kind of pattern on the daily charts. The index gained 1.7 percent during the week and witnessed bullish candle formation on the weekly scale.
“Normally, a high wave pattern formation after a reasonable high or at resistance could be considered as a reversal pattern, post confirmation. But, absence of confirmation after the last pattern, and one may expect this to be an uptrend continuation for the short term,” Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
“Nifty on the weekly chart formed a long bull candle, after an upside breakout of the multi-month trend line resistance in the previous week around 15,000 mark. This pattern could be a validation of upside breakout on the weekly chart,” he said.
“Having moved above the resistance at 15,430, one may expect further upside in the coming sessions. The next upside targets can be watched around 15,800. Immediate support is now placed at 15,350-15,300 levels,” he added.
