Sameet Chavan (Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel Broking): said," The markets continued its positive momentum in the first hour of the trade yesterday. However, as the day progressed, the stock specific momentum witnessed some sluggishness which resulted in profit booking at the end. The Nifty has resistance in the range of 15250-15300 while the Banking index too is facing some resistance around 36600 mark since last three sessions. Thus, it is necessary to surpass these respective levels for a continuation of the up move. However, since we have seen a sharp run up post budget without any correction, some consolidation or a correction would be healthy to set up the next leg of upmove. Yesterday's low around 15060 is around the hourly 20 EMA which is an important short term support. In case the index breaches this, then some more correction upto 14870-14900 cannot be ruled out. On the flipside, a move above the mentioned range of 15250-15300 would mean a continuation of the trend."
