CLOSING BELL

Stock market highlights: 
Equities sprinted for a fourth straight day on Monday as hefty buying in auto, metals, financials, and Reliance Industries lifted sentiment. The S&P BSE Sensex jumped 545 points, or 0.95 per cent, to end at 58,116, while the Nifty50 reclaimed the 17,300-mark to close at 17,340, up 182 points or 1 per cent.

M&M (up 6 per cent) was the top Sensex gainer, followed by RIL, Maruti Suzuki, Bharti Airtel, Power Grid, Kotak Bank, Ultratech Cement, ITC, NTPC, SBI, Axis Bank, and Titan. On the downside, Sun Pharma, HUL, Nestle, TCS, HDFC, and Asian Paints were the laggards, down up to 2.5 per cent.

In the broader market, the BSE MidCap and SmallCap indices added 1.5 per cent each. Sectorally, the Nifty Auto index soared 3.3 per cent, and the Nifty PSB and Metal indices 1.5 per cent each. The Nifty Pharma index was the only loser, down 0.08 per cent.

Global check
European stocks were muted on Monday to begin the new month, with investors digesting a fresh round of corporate earnings. The pan-European Stoxx 600 hovered fractionally above the flatline by mid-morning, with banks adding 1.9 per cent.

On Wall Street, on the other hand, was suggesting a negative start with futures of all three main indices down 0.3 per cent each.

Tech View :: 17,000 is likely to act as crucial support

The uptrend continues in the market as the bulls' invasion of the 17,000-17,500 zone continues. The trend is likely to remain positive as long as the benchmark index sustains above 200-DMA, placed at 17,025.

Over the near term 17,000 is likely to act as crucial support; whereas on the higher end, 17,500 may act as crucial resistance. Again, above 17,500, the Nifty may move up towards 18,000

Tech View: Nifty Bank is in overbought zone

The Bank Nifty continued its uptrend with higher top and higher low formations on the daily chart. The index RSI has now entered overbought territory and some profit booking scenarios cannot be ruled out from the current levels. The index immediate upside resistance stands at 38,000 and support at 37,000 level and might consolidate ahead of the RBI policy.

MARKET COMMENT :: 'FPIs turning net buyers is the major factor'

FPIs turning net buyers is the major factor driving the uptick in the domestic market. Record low unemployment rate in the Eurozone and fall in crude oil prices, increased optimism globally. Oil prices took a hit as the deteriorating demand outlook outweighed cues of ongoing supply tightness. Auto stocks were in focus post the release of positive auto sales numbers.
