Indian stock market today: The Indian equity market indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are likely to open with strong gains on Thursday led by positive global market cues amid dovish US Federal Reserve policy.

“Technically, this pattern indicates formation of a doji type candle pattern. Normally, such doji formations after weakness calls for reversal on the upside, post confirmation. Nifty sustained the immediate support of 20,850 levels after violating it intraday. The market has recovered from another key support of 10-day EMA around 20,720 levels on Wednesday," said Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

According to Shetti, the upside recovery of Wednesday from the immediate supports signal chances of further upside for the Nifty 50 in the short term. 

“There is a higher possibility of Nifty moving again into all-time highs of 21,040+ levels in the near term," he added.

Bank Nifty Predictions

The Bank Nifty index ended 5 points lower at 47,092 on December 13.

“Despite initial concerns, the Bank Nifty index displayed strength by not breaching the crucial support of 46,800 and instead witnessed a sharp rebound from lower levels. To sustain and further advance the upward momentum, the index needs to maintain levels above 47,200. A decisive close above 47,500, where call writers are active, could pave the way for additional gains, targeting levels of 48,000/48,500 in the upcoming," Shah said.

Bank Nifty is also consolidating in the range of 46,500 to 47,590. 

“On the downside, 46,800 is the crucial support, and until that is held, we can expect Bank Nifty to resume its upmove towards 48,000. Overall, the trend is positive, and dips towards 46,800–46,500 should be viewed as a buying opportunity," said Mandar Bhojane, Research Analyst at Choice Broking.
