The benchmark indices witnessed a sharp recovery rally, after a volatile trading session the Nifty ends 68 points higher while the Sensex was up by 141 points. After a weak opening, finally the Nifty took the support near 17200/57700 and reversed sharply. Among sectors, strong buying interest was seen in Metal stocks, as a result, the Nifty Metal index rallied nearly 3.5 percent.
Technically, the short-term formation is still on the weak side, but due to an extremely oversold situation the market registered a technical bounce back, it also formed a bullish candle which indicates further upside from current levels. For the day traders, now 17400/58300 would be the key level to watch out for. Above the same, the pullback rally will continue up to 17600-17650/59000-59150. On the flip side, below 17400/58300, the strong possibility of one more leg of correction till 17330-17280/58000-57800 is not ruled out.
