Markets Ahead

NIFTY closed at fresh high levels even when Bank Nifty consolidated after opening. The most gains were contributed by Tata Motors by its incredible 20% rally. The stock hit a price of Rs 500 today. Never too late to invest in good stocks like these. Search for dips! 

The level of Nifty’s all-time high of 18,050 was respected today, but funnily on the opposite side. It was taken as a support after the gap-up opening. 

Looking ahead, 18,050 will be an important level for the index. If 38,500 is held in Bank Nifty, we can expect the level of 40,000 to be a reality soon. HDFC Bank even though it did not move much today is at its all-time highest closing level. Kotak is 3% away from its 52-week high and IndusInd Bank and SBI are at their 52-week highs.

Nifty’s 5-day straight rally looks interesting. Tomorrow is the weekly expiry, so we can expect interesting moves. The short-covering move from 18,000 looks complete and there is a chance for consolidation tomorrow if Banks continue to move sideways.

Infosys and Wipro results will cause a volatile opening in these stocks tomorrow. Watch for big gap-ups/downs and take care before trading.
