The Nifty sold off from highs on Friday, but it succeeded in reversing sharply from support levels. In brief, the internals is looking strong and that should help Nifty surpass the level of 10140-10300 without any major efforts.
“On a weekly basis, 10040 would act like a strong support. Dismissal of 10140 would lift the index to 10350 in next few weeks with a minor resistance at 10170 and 10225,” Kotak Securities said in a report.
“Any short-term weakness till 10050 would be an opportunity to create long positions with a final stop loss at 10040 on a closing basis. Buying is advisable if Nifty crosses 10140 with a stop loss at 10100 for the target 10200/10225,” it said.
