Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities said," The short-term formation is still on the weaker side, but due to the extremely oversold situation, the market registered a technical bounce back. It has also formed a bullish candle, indicating further upside from current levels. For day traders, 17,400 would be the key level to watch out for. Above the same, a pullback rally can continue up to 17,600-17,650 levels. On the flip side, below 17,400, there is a strong possibility of one more leg of correction till 17,330-17,280."
