Indian benchmark index Nifty50 ended trade in the green with gains of 128 points as bulls took control of the proceedings once again following a few volatile sessions. Further, the index is approaching its recent high of 16,700. A sustained trade beyond this resistance before the monthly expiry session on Thursday will extend the up move, taking the index higher to levels of 16,790-16,900.
However, failure to breakout and sustain above this immediate hurdle may trigger profit booking, dragging the Nifty50 lower to levels of 16,500-16,400. Further, technical indicator RSI remains above the 60-level even on a shorter time frame chart, indicating strong bullish momentum dominant in our markets.
