Nagaraj Shetti of HDFC Securities said, the short-term trend of Nifty continues to be positive, and there is a possibility of some more upside or range bound movement in the next few sessions.
“The present upside bounce could stretch up to maximum 11,400-11,500 levels by this or next week, before showing next round of weakness from the highs. Immediate support is now placed at 11,050,” he said.
Vinod Nair of Geojit Financial Services said traders should limit overnight positions and keep booking profits while investors should follow an accumulation strategy.
Chandan Taparia of Motilal Oswal Financial Services said the index needs to hold above 11,111 zones to witness a further upmove towards 11,333 and then 11,450 zones while on the downside, major supports are seen at 11,000 then 10,880 levels.
That said here’s a look at what some of the key indicators are suggesting for Tuesday’s action:
