After a few days of the lackluster movement, a positive trend in today’s market activity. The expected levels of the market are likely to be in the range of 14500 and 14800, and it’s going to be crucial for the short-term market scenario to sustain above the 14500 Nifty50 Index level.  The momentum indicators like RSI and MACD support the upside move and indicate potential upside from the current market level.

MARKET CLOSING COMMENT :: Mohit Nigam, Head, PMS & Advisory at Hem Securities

After a positive opening, the market moved higher during the day with NIFTY posting gains of over 1% and traded close to 14650 led by Metals and Banks, both trading with gains of above 2%. There was a larger action seen in the mid & small cap space after a long time.

MARKET CLOSING COMMENT :: Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research at HDFC Securities

Indian benchmark equity indices ended higher for the second day in a row on April 27. The Nifty opened higher and kept making higher top higher bottom till the close. At close the Nifty was up 168 points or 1.16% at 14653. Optimism that the U.S. decision to offer vaccine support will aid the nation’s effort to control the world’s largest surge in coronavirus infections helped sentiments.
 
Nifty filled the downgap made on April 19 and closed above it, thus nullifying the bearishness arising out of that gap. 14697 is the next resistance, which does not seem difficult to breach. However 14785 being another downgap resistance (made on April 12) could be a tough resistance on the way up. On falls 14557 could offer support

Healthy buying across sectors led by Banking, Metals and Specialty-Chemicals is leading the rally. Stocks are up in anticipation of good quarterly earnings and improved outlook due to a hike in stock prices & demand. Mid & Small caps are outperforming the main benchmark. This is though FIIs continue to be net sellers in the domestic market, due to weak Asian markets ahead FED meeting, it was more than compensated by DIIs & Retail investors
