On the outlook for Nifty 50 today, Vaishali Parekh said, "Nifty opened on a strong note with a gap up and continued with the positive momentum as the day progressed on the back of strong move from IT giants Infosys and TCS to scale the 21,900 zone making new high once again. As mentioned earlier, the index has further upside potential of 22,300 levels with bias and sentiment remaining strong along with frontline stocks participating indicating strength and gaining momentum."

"Bank Nifty witnessed some positive moves with ICICI Bank, SBI, and Kotak Bank indicating improvement, but HDFC Bank failed to participate which restricted the index to end near the 47,700 zone with a gain of 270 points. The index would need a decisive breach above the 48,400 zone to confirm a breakout and expect for further fresh upward move till the 49,800 level," said Parekh.
