Nifty kick started the day with a pompous upside opening gap of 50 points, surpassing the resistance of 7780 and zooming forward to touch down the level of 7850. The positive IIP and CPI data which showed that the industrial production has improved and the retail inflation has come down, was the major trigger behind today’s movement.
The BankNifty index also took the same progressive stance , though it gave up a few points prior to close to profit booking, closing at the level which we have been citing as the resistance in past few wraps, ie 16250.
Since tomorrow and day after tomorrow are holiday, Monday we will be expected to be a dull session given the fact that tueday would again be a holiday. This truncation in week has often witnessed dullness in activity. The outlook remains bullish on the indices in the long term.

TheNifty IT is the one which progressed the least in the lot. The Auto index infact touched a 4 months high in today’s trade.
