The market continued to remain positive for the second day in a row. On Tuesday, once again the benchmark index — Nifty/Sensex opened with a strong gap and quickly surpassed 14550/ 48600 mark, which is a short term resistance level. The important point is, the market not only crossed the resistance mark but even traded above 14550/ 48600 levels which is grossly positive for the Nifty /Sensex. Modest broader market participation and strong performance from Metal, PSU Banks and selective financial stocks helped trades to maintain a long stance over short.
Technically, the Nifty has held a level of 14550/48600 which suggests bulls are in total control and would like to take this ride towards 14750-14800/ 49300-49800 levels. Above 14550/ 48600 levels, we may see a pullback rally to continue up to 14700-14750/49100-49300. There is a possibility of a further upside that may continue to push the index upwards, till 14800/49800. On the flip side, dismissal of 14550/ 48600 could open one more leg of correction up to 14485/ 48200 levels.
