The stock market of India finally broke the losing streak and ticked higher on weekend trade session. The BSE Sensex rose 51 points but failed to break the 38,000 resistance while the Nifty-50 index closed above the psychological 11,250 levels. Bank Nifty index sustained above 29,000 by posting 282 point gains in the intraday trade. Suzlon Energy was the top gaining stock today as the stock registered around 15 per cent gains in Friday trade session. Phillips Carbon, YES Bank, Graphite India and IDFC First Bank were the other stocks that were in the top gaining shares today.
Speaking on the current market scenario Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical equity analyst told Zee Business, "The market is range-bound and has strong support at 11,250 having a strong resistance at around 11,400. So, I advise investors to maintain buy on dips as and when the market reaches around 11,270-75 levels but everything would depend on the Monday opening. If it manages to open above 11,250 then we can expect some recovery in the markets in coming to a few trade sessions."
