On the sectoral front – metal, utilities, power, and public sector led the rally, while a mild profit booking was seen in the healthcare and telecom indices.
Strong earnings from India Inc. with privatization buzz in the PSU space as well as higher base metal prices globally fueled the rally in the metal index.
“Investors seem to be cheering the strong earnings numbers from technology giants as absence of any negative news has been markets to new highs. After a strong rally on daily charts last week, the index has formed a Doji Star kind of formation, which suggests a temporary overbought situation. However, the short-term trend is still positive,” Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities Ltd, said.
“We are of the view that due to overbought formation the bulls may take a caution stance near the 18600-18650 resistance level. For day traders, 18400 could be the trend decider level. Above the same, the uptrend formation will continue up to 18600-18650 levels,” he said.
Chouhan further added that on the flip side, below 18400, a technical sell off up to 18350-18275 is not ruled out. The intraday texture shows markets in an overbought zone, hence level-based trading would be the ideal strategy for day traders.
India VIX rose by 8.97 per cent from 15.77 to 17.18 levels. Now VIX needs to cool down below 15-14 zones to continue the smooth market ride.
More than 350 stocks on the BSE hit a fresh 52-week high that includes names like Tata Power, NHPC, Nalco, Vedanta, Hindustan Zinc, and Union Bank of India.

The Nifty50 formed a small Bearish candle on the daily scale but has been forming higher lows from the last four sessions.
Now, the index has to continue to hold above 18350 zones to extend its move towards 18543 and 18700 levels whereas on the downside support is seen at 18250 and 18150 zones.

On the technical front, benchmark indices witnessed a continuous positive trend after sustaining well above 18,400 levels.

The Nifty continued with its winning streak for the seventh consecutive session. The index opened with yet another gap on the upside & tested the level of 18500 where it spent the entire day. Though the short-term target is 19000 on the upside, 18500 is a crucial intermediate level.
The index can consolidate its gains here before extending higher. Also, as a result of the steep rally in the last few sessions, the short-term momentum indicators have been pushed into the overbought zone & they need to cool off to create further room on the upside.
Hence, the index can witness a brief pause near 18500 before marching towards 19000. On the other hand, an immediate support zone is placed at the recent gap area of 18445 - 18350
