On markets closing: Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments
The Nifty has closed above 18,000 which is a positive sign. However, it is still indecisive and is facing resistance at higher levels. If we can sustain these levels, the markets can scale up higher to 18,400 and then 18,600. We have good support at 17,600 and hence long positions can be accumulated for higher targets.

Technical and derivatives report: Sameet Chavan (chief analyst-technical and derivatives, Angel One Ltd
Overall the global cues were a bit favourable in the morning and hence after a long break, our markets opened with a decent upside gap to test 18,000. However within few minutes of trade, all these gains just disappeared and in fact, we went on to slide below 17,850. However market was not done with its twists and turns as we saw strong buying interest at lower levels to pull the market higher. The positive momentum gained some pace post the mid-session to surpass the morning high. Eventually, Nifty ended the session with more than eight tenths of a percent gains.
Market witnessed a complete roller coaster yesterday as the volatility was at its best. Fortunately it ended in favour of the bulls as we managed to reclaim the 18000 and ended the session almost at the highest point of the day. The only pocket that kept sulking yesterday was the banking space and the sole culprit there was the IndusInd Bank as it plunged more than 10% on the back of some negative news flow. Now are we completely out of the woods after yesterday’s move? the answer is not yet, because if we have to regain any strength, we need to surpass the sturdy wall of 18,100–18,200. Till then one still needs to avoid aggressive longs. On the flipside, 18,000 followed by 17,850 are to be seen as immediate supports.
The broader market did extremely well yesterday and throughout the day (especially in the latter half), some of the individual stocks gave excellent moves. Hence, traders can still capitalize on such potential bets; but need to follow strict money management.
