After taking a pause in the prior week, bulls regained momentum in the Nifty. Defending levels of 16,400, Nifty rallied for the straight fifth session. Positive follow-up action above 16,720 is required to unlock further upside potential. Failure to do so, could attract consolidation at the upper band.

Bank Nifty continued to under-perform against the benchmark index. During the week, Bank Nifty recovered from lower levels but failed to surpass 36,000. Immediate trading band for Bank Nifty is seen within 35,000-36,000, and a breakthrough on either side could trigger directional moves.

Ratio of FMCG index vs Nifty is bouncing off the support zone. Any sustenance could continue on gradual outperformance in the FMCG space; the auto index’s consolidation at lower bands is likely to continue.

Positive traction is seen in the Infrastructure space with 90% of its components settling in green. Positive follow-up action is likely to unlock further upside potential.
