The Nifty 50 index finished 156 points higher at the 21,853 level and the BSE Sensex surged 440 points and closed at the 72,085 mark. However, the Bank Nifty index lost 217 points and ended at the 45,970 level. The small-cap index rose less than the Nifty 50 index even as the advance-decline ratio rose to 1.17:1.

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 today, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The short-term uptrend status of Nifty remains intact but the overall chart pattern suggests a possibility of high volatility at the new highs. Any attempt of an upside move from here could encounter strong resistance around 22,100 to 22,200 levels and that could result in short-term weakness from the highs. Immediate support for Nifty today is placed at 21,700 levels."
