Domestic market benchmarks the Sensex and the Nifty 50 closed November with strong gains. This surge was fueled by an uplift in sentiment, driven by mounting anticipation of a peak in interest rates in the US, coupled with the continuing strength in India's economic growth prospects.

Experts' views on markets

"India’s GDP growth upgrade to 6.4 per cent from 6 per cent for FY24 by S&P Global Rating has brought optimism to the broad market. The Nifty 50 could cross the psychological level of 20,000 and be able to sustain the gains by providing long-term support. The bold performance of the global markets and IPO listing are adding glitters to mid and small-caps. The state exit poll and the final result slated to be announced on Sunday may bring some cautiousness," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

"We have almost reached the record high now after three days of advance and may take a breather now. However, rotational buying across sectors would keep the tone positive. We thus suggest utilizing an intermediate pause or a dip to add quality names," said Ajit Mishra, SVP - Technical Research, Religare Broking.

Technical views on Nifty 50

Rupak De, Senior Technical analyst at LKP Securities underscored the sentiment remains strong as long as Nifty stays above 20,000 since the Put writers at the 20,000 strike will defend this level moving forward.

On the other hand, the sentiment might weaken only if there's a drop below 20,000. Until then, the buy-on-dips strategy is likely to stay prevalent.

According to De, on the higher side, 20,200-20,230 acts as a resistance zone. If breached, the index could potentially move towards 20,450-20,500.
