10500 & 11000 levels are strong support & resistance levels range respectively based on option open interest data so far for current month series. The market will remain very volatile ahead of Result season this month. By looking at current structure, I feel the market is going to surpass all-time high soon on main indices & this rally will have time wise consolidation rather than price wise correction in short term. Any kind of such short-term correction or consolidation is buying opportunity for medium to long-term Investment perspectives till medium term reverses.

Close below short-term reversal levels will lead to sharp correction till 9950-9800 levels on nifty & 32400-31800 levels on in short term.
