Stock Market Updates: GIFT Nifty Indicates a Positive Start; Maruti Suzuki, BOI in Focus - MyDhanush Blogs by Ashika

The Indian stock market ended on a positive note for the third consecutive session on January 10, 2024. At close, Sensex jumped 271 points at the 71657 mark. Nifty gained 73 points and ended the session at the 21618 level.

Among sectors, pharma, information & technology, and metal indices added 0.4 percent each, while oil & gas index shed 0.5 percent.

Around 1350 stocks advanced and 1206 stocks declined while 81 stocks remained unchanged.

Technical Analysis:

On the technical front, Nifty formed a bullish candlestick pattern with a long lower shadow on the daily timeframe, indicating buying interest at lower levels. Though the Index had been able to take support from the 10-day EMA at 21550 for the last couple of sessions on the upside too the Index had been facing stiff resistance near 21800 levels. Thus, only a decisive move above 21800 would open the doors for the next leg of the upward move, else consolidation in the broader range of 21800-21500 wherein stock-specific action would prevail as we enter the Q3 earning season.

Going forward, the zone of 21550-21500 will act as immediate support for the index. Any sustainable move below the level of 21500 will lead to profit booking in the index. While, on the flip side, 21830-21860 will act as crucial resistance for the index. Any sustainable move above the level of 21860 will lead to the extension of the upside rally up to the level of 22050, followed by 22200 in the short term.
