Technical View:

Nifty formed a bullish candle on the daily charts

The Nifty has witnessed fresh breakouts on intra time frames which suggest the current pullback can extend up to above 11650 levels, suggest experts.

The up move can extend up to 11650-11700 zone which is a strong hurdle on the higher side while support shifted towards 11550-11500 zone.

Traders with high-risk appetite are advised to go for fresh buying on an intraday dip, if any in the first two hours, around 11550 levels with a stop below 11500, says Mazhar Mohammad of Chartviewindia.in.
