The benchmark indices recovered sharply from the day’s lowest levels in the previous trading session. The Nifty 50 index ended 120 points higher while the BSE Sensex gained 350 points. Among sectors, metal stocks outperformed as a result metal index rallied over 4 per cent whereas Bank Nifty and Auto indices remained under pressure. Earlier this week, the market opened with a gap down but after the initial sell-off, the index took the support near 16400 and reversed sharply. Technically, the Nifty/ Sensex formed a long bullish candle which was broadly positive. Currently, the market is hovering between 16500-16750/55000-56200 range. In the last hour of trade on Monday, NSE Nifty and Sensex cleared the resistance of 16750/56200 but it would be interesting to see whether the indices hold the level of 16750/56200 or not. For the traders now, 16600/55800 would be the immediate support level to watch out. Above which, the index could continue the momentum till 16850-16950/56500-56800. However, the dismissal of 16600/55800 could possibly trigger one more correction wave till 16500-16350/55500-55300.
