The BSE Sensex shot up 622 points and closed at 80,519, whereas the Bank Nifty index ended marginally higher at 52,278. The rally in the Indian stock market was fueled by strong buying of Indian IT stocks after strong TCS Q1 results 2024. Cash market volumes on the NSE rose 11.2% to 1.55 lakh crore. The broad market indices ended negatively even as the advance-decline ratio fell to 0.67:1.

Trade set up for Monday

On the outlook for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, said, “The short-term trend of Nifty remains positive. Having moved above the hurdle of 24,400, Nifty is possibly moving towards the next upside target of 24,950 in the near term. Immediate support for Nifty today is at 24,350.”

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Hrishikesh Yedve, AVP Technical and Derivatives Research at Asit C Mehta, said, “The Bank Nifty opened flat but gained acceleration in the first half. However, it erased most gains in the second half, settling the day flat at 52,279. Technically, the index formed a doji candle daily near the 21-day EMA support. If the index holds above 51,750, a buy-on-dips strategy should be adopted in Bank Nifty. On the upside, 52,800 and 53,000 will serve as strong resistance levels.”
