Speaking on the market scenario Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical equity analyst told Zee Business Online, "the market is range-bound but overall the sentiment is bullish. From Nifty perspective, the market is currently trading in the range of 11,700 to 11,850. Tomorrow opening would be crucial and if it opens below 11,700 and sustains below that levels then the markets may see further downside in coming trading sessions."
