Hope of a rate cut is mainly driving the rally. "The weekly strong bull candle which settled above its previous week high indicating continuation of positive momentum ahead in the markets. The Oscillators of gauging the Overbought conditions like RSI, Stochastic, and MACD are on higher side shows the overbought in benchmark Indexes. We expect the index to consolidate in the range of 11400-11800 with some stock specific action," Manish Yadav, Head of Research, CapitalAim said.

However, some analysts feel that the market could face some resistance ahead.

Technical View

"We observe back to back three doji patterns in the last three sessions and today's doji is placed slightly lower to yesterday's doji pattern. Technically, this three formation could be considered as a rare bearish 'tri-star' pattern, which indicate a possibility of top reversal pattern soon in the market," said Nagaraj Shetti - Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst, HDFC Securities

 

"Still we need confirmation of reversal by the way of decline from the highs. Hence, long positions needs to be careful at the swing highs," he further said.

"The gap formed at the start of the week at 11630 will be seen as a crucial near-term support and only if the same is breached, then we can see some profit booking," said Ruchit Jain, Equity Technical Analyst, Angel Broking Ltd.
