Commenting upon the market trend in last three trading sessions Mehul Kothari, Senior Technical Analyst, IndiaNivesh Securities told in a written statement, "Despite some initial hiccups during the Thursday session, Nifty managed to close above 10880. In fact it has closed above 10900 which indicate that the triangle breakout is still intact and Nifty has a potential to sneak above 11000 mark. At the same time, we also maintain our stance that 11200 still remains a very strong hurdle for the bulls. Thus we would advise traders to start booking profits once index arrives near that zone. As of now, the support of 10620 has now been shifted to 10690." He said that only a move below the same might dwell the ongoing momentum. For the coming sessions 10930 and 10840 would remain an intermediate resistance & support respectively for the markets. Currently we advise traders to trade with positive bias but avoid any overleveraged positions.
