Here’s how analysts read the market pulse:
Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, said the short-term trend of the Nifty continues to be positive with range movement. “The market is now showing signs of witnessing a decisive upside breakout of the important resistance of 15,900 levels in the next 1-2 sessions. A sustainable upmove above 15,900-15,950 is expected to pull the Nifty towards the next resistance of 16,300 in the short term. Immediate support is placed at 15,750,” he said.
Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking, said indications are in favour of a further rebound in the index, thanks to fresh buoyancy in the banking and financial pack. “However, supportive global cues would continue to play a critical role in any sustained up move.”
That said, here’s a look at what some key indicators are suggesting for Tuesday’s action:
US market shut

Energy shares boost European equities
European shares rose on Monday, led by shares of oil and gas companies, with investors awaiting eurozone inflation data after a red-hot consumer price report last week cemented the case for rate hike by the European Central Bank (ECB).
The continent-wide STOXX 600 index was up 0.8 per cent by 0716 GMT, after falling last week on worries about a potential global economic slowdown.
Nifty50 formed a bullish candle on the daily chart. Analysts said the index might remain in the consolidation range with a positive bias as long as it does not breach the 15,900 level decisively on the upside. They see strong support for the index at the 15,700 level.
