On the outlook for the Nifty 50 index, Vaishali Parekh said, "Nifty witnessed a strong pick-up from the morning session to gain strength as the day progressed and sustained above the 22,200 zone to hit once again the all-time high of 22,419 level to end on a strong note. The index is once again in a strong uptrend with next targets of 22,500 and 22,800 levels expected in the coming days."

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Vaishali Parekh of Prabhudas Lilladher said, "Bank Nifty finally witnessed a strong bullish candle on the daily chart to recover from the 50EMA zone of 46,250 level to close on a strong note near 47,300 levels with sentiment much improved expecting for further rise. The index would have the next targets of 48,400 and 49,700 levels, respectively with near-term support maintained near the 46,200 zone," said Parekh.

Breakout stocks today

"The technical set-up of the Banking stocks (IndusInd Bank- Symmetrical Triangle Breakout, Kotak Bank- Bullish Hammer Candlestick pattern at a strong support zone with a bullish divergence in RSI, SBIN- Flag and Pole Breakout) is pointing towards an extension of the existing trend. The level of 48,000 will be considered as the immediate resistance while the downside seems to be protected at 46,700. From the Auto segment, Auto components & equipment stocks look strong namely Jamna Auto (Symmetrical Triangle Breakout) and Rico Auto (Cup and Handle Breakout). Bharat Forge and Tata Motors have also given a breakout from Symmetrical and Ascending Triangle formation respectively. We retain our positive stance on TCS (Rounding Bottom Breakout) from the IT pack. A couple of stocks from the Metal sector have given a strong breakout namely Hindustan Copper (Ascending Triangle Breakout), Jindal Steel (Cup and Handle Breakout), SAIL (Symmetrical Triangle Breakout), and Tata Steel (Rounding Bottom Breakout)," said Aditya Gaggar, Director of Progressive Shares.
