Technically speaking, Bank Nifty’s technical picture on the daily chart shifts to bullish from neutral amidst bullish breakout technical conditions on the daily charts. Immediate support for now is near 45,600 levels while resistance is near 47,000 levels.

Indian markets:

  • The market extended gains for the fourth consecutive session on February 16, with Nifty surpassing 22,000, driven by strength in auto, Information Technology, and pharmaceutical stocks.
  • Positive global cues supported Indian equity indices, which opened in the green and maintained a positive trajectory throughout the session, with Nifty staying above the 22,000 mark.
  • Across sectors, buying activity was prevalent, except for oil & gas and power, with auto, realty, and pharmaceutical sectors emerging as top gainers.
  • Market breadth favored advances, fueled by sustained buying in the midcap and smallcap segments.

Global Markets:
