The index appears to be finding some support at 15,380, said Mazhar Mohammad of Chartviewindia.in. This is the lower end of the bullish gap zone registered on June 21, he said, adding that as long as this counter sustains above 15,382 on a closing basis, hopes of a pullback rally remain alive.
“In case Nifty50 manages to get past 15,700, then the pullback swing shall expand into the critical resistance zone of 15,850 – 900 levels,” he said.
For the day, the index closed at 15,556.65, up 143.35 points or 0.93 per cent.
“The Nifty has stepped into a short-term consolidation mode recently and accordingly it is witnessing range-bound action. The index witnessed sharp swings near 15,400-15,600 on June 23. On the higher side, 15,670-15,700, which was earlier acting as a support zone, is now posing as a resistance zone as per the principle of role reversal. The index is facing selling pressure as it is approaching this area. Unless the level of 15,700 gets taken out on a closing basis, expect it to stay in a consolidation mode,” said Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Head of Technical Research, Sharekhan by
Nagaraj Shetti of
