Stock Market News: On account of some fresh triggers coming out after Maharashtra and Haryana assembly poll outcome as Congress, NCP and other parties are planning to stop BJP-led government formation in the two states. The BSE Sensex rose 37 points to 39,058 levels while the Nifty-50 index nudged 1 point to 11,583 levels. Bank Nifty index rose 288 points to 29,395 levels.
Speaking on the current market scenario Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical equity analyst said, "Overall the market is moving in an upward direction and currently it is trading in the range of 11,500 to 11,700. Any further upward trend can be expected once the Nifty breaks the 11,700 levels and sustains above that. Right now, I would advise stock market investors to maintain buy on dips strategy."
