The stock market of India continues to remain range-bound as the Christmas holiday lull counter the trade cheer at Dalal Street. The BSE Sensex edged 22 points up at 41,665 levels while the 50-stocks Nifty index went up 15 points to 12,278 levels. Bank Nifty dipped 30 points at 32,369 levels.
Speaking on the current market trends Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical equity analyst said, "The market is facing resistance at 12,300 levels. However, it has strong support at 11,970 levels. Bullish or bearish trend can be determined after the breaking of either side of the Nifty range. Until then, I would advise stock market investors to maintain buy on dips strategy."
