The bulls took control over the markets once again, after spending over a week in a consolidation range which helped the index to gain nearly a percent. The recent macroeconomic data and encouraging pace of vaccination drive have boosted sentiment domestically and helped the markets to inch higher. However, cues are mixed from the global front so we suggest a check on overnight trades.
On the index front, Nifty would find support around 17,400 in case of any dip. On the higher side, a decisive close above 17,550 would pave the way for 17,650+ levels.

The upside breakout of range movement could be a cheering factor for bulls to make a comeback. One may expect further upside towards 17,600-17,700 levels in the next few sessions. Immediate support is placed at 17,420 levels.

The Nifty successfully closed above the 17,450 mark which was a resistance owing to the sideways patch. We should now be heading higher to 17,550 and then 17,750. These are the next two target points to look out for. Since the first target is very close, a "buy on dips" approach is suggested.

The measures announced for the telecom and auto industry are sweeping with potential for far-reaching beneficial impact. A four-year moratorium on dues of the telecom sector which covers AGR, spectrum dues and interest payment will bring big relief to the cash-strapped sector. This is positive for banks, too, since banks' exposure too will decline significantly. 100% FDI in telecom and redefinition of AGR excluding non-core revenue are welcome steps that can stimulate investment in the industry.
The Rs 26,058 crore PLI scheme for autos, auto components and drones is a major initiative to attract advanced auto technology and supply chains into India. This is a timely policy when global supply chains are looking for markets outside China for shifting supply chains. The PLI scheme's goal of investment of Rs 42,500 crore in 5 years is ambitious but achievable. In brief, bold reforms.

Bulls were back in action and both benchmark indices closed at fresh record highs on renewed buying support, which was missing in the last few sessions. After a firm opening, Nifty cleared the important resistance of 17,450. The intraday index rally was largely aided by strong investor participation in the telecom and oil & gas stocks. Technically, post the 17,450 range breakout, the index succeeded to close above 17,500, which indicates a strong possibility of a continuation uptrend wave up to 17,575. Above the same, the index could rally up to 17,625, whereas trading below 17,450 may trigger a quick intraday correction up to 17,400-17,350 levels.
Sahaj Agrawal, Head of Research- Derivatives at Kotak Securities
We expect the Nifty index to conquer 18,000 and above in the medium term. Last matured support for the index is seen at 17,080 above which we remain positive. Options concentration is seen at 17,000 put and 17,500 call – this is indicative of some resistance at 17,500-17,600 levels. Value is seen in Auto and Mid-cap Banking stocks; expect outperformance in the midcap space to continue.
