Research suggests that 17200-17300 may act as an important levels in the market to stay positive. If the market sustained the level of 17200-17300, we can expect it to trade till the range of 17500-17600. Technical indicators also support positivity in the market.

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

The Nifty is in positive terrain, the breakout level was 17350 and we managed to close above that on Friday. This should allow the index to move higher to 17575-17600 and then 17800. 

A good base has been formed at 17100 and as long as we can keep above that, all dips can be utilized to accumulate long positions.
