The first half of the day was range-bound and was a perfect example of consolidation. This reminds of the old expiry days with a range of less than 100 points. However, the market was rather volatile in the end.
The day-candles look rather bullish and the gap is about to be filled. The W breakout was successful and BNF fuelled the up-move. There is scope for breakout of 35,000 level.
There was an ideal index management with BNF moving higher and IT moving down faster with NIFTY struggling to break day-high. Bears won it in the end and the index fell heavily though there was a bounce-back later. This gives us the big lesson; the move after a strong fight will be fierce always.
Boris Johnson resigned as UK PM but there was no impact on FTSE.
There is positivity everywhere. Let us see if NIFTY can continue the rally. I will be watching TCS as the results will be announced today.
I will be closely watching 16,000 on the downside and 16,300 on the upside for the coming days.
