The market has formed an Inside Body candlestick on the daily chart that is an indication of bullish continuation, especially if the market breadth is exceptionally strong. For every stock closing lower in the market on Thursday, there were three stocks that finished on a positive note, while all sectors closed in positive territory. This is in stark contrast to the previous day. On Thursday, the market closed at 15,738/52,300, which is above the previous day’s average levels. Also, there was support from financial stocks that have the potential to take the market to levels of 16,000/53,000.
Besides, big support will be at 15,600/51,900 and 15,550/51,750 levels. Nifty Bank and Nifty Financial Services, led by SBI, ICICI Bank and Bajaj twins, closed at the highest level of the day. The strategy should be to buy Nifty for a target of 16,000/16,050 (53,000/53,100) with a final stop loss at 15,550/51,750.
