Stock Market Today: On account of strong global cues after the Wall Street rally yesterday, the Indian indices opened on the higher side in the opening bell today. The BSE Sensex went up 345 points to 30,374 levels while the NSE Nifty soared 104 points at 8,928 levels. Bank Nifty index went up 323 points to 17,896 levels. Telecom, banking, auto, oil, energya ande gas stocks were among the major gainers in the opening bell trade session.
Speaking on the current market scenario Prakash Pandey, MD & CEO at Plutus Advisors said, “Nifty is currently trading in the broader ragne of 8,700 to 9,100. There can be some rise in the Indian indices on the recent rally at the Wall Street indices on Coronavirus vaccines hopes. At Indian indices, Nifty is facing resistance at 9,100, if it manages to break this level and sustain above, then we can expect it to scale up to 9,380 levels soon.” However, Pandey advised investors to continue booking profit on every rise of 5-6 per cent.
Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives at Angel Broking said, “After breaking rock solid support of 9000, some sort of long liquidation was expected but the initial move was so swift that we got deceived by a contradictory pattern on charts. Hence, going forward we need to see whether we get any follow through selling and in the process, the said pattern (Bullish Wolfe wave) gets negated or not. For the coming session, 8800-8750 would now be seen as crucial support and any decisive move below this would certainly negate the hopes of any recovery, at least for a while. On the flipside, 8920 followed by 9000 remains to be an immediate hurdle now. The global markets are trading with a positive bias and we are likely to see a gap up opening. It would be crucial to see how markets react around the 9000 levels and if we have to regain any strength, we need to reclaim 9000 convincingly.”
