The S&P BSE Sensex closed at 76,607, up 150 points or 0.2 per cent, while the Nifty50 hit a record high of 23,442 before ending at 23,323, up 58 points or 0.25 per cent.

Tech View :: 'Nifty might continue consolidating within the 23,300-23,500 range'

The Nifty closed flat after a strong initial hour of trading, encountering resistance around 23,400. However, the short-term trend remains positive as the index stayed above 23,300. In the near term, the index might continue consolidating within the 23,300-23,500 range. A decisive breakout above 23,500 could trigger a rally towards 23,800.

Tech View :: 'Nifty Bank fails to top 50,000 on weekly expiry day'

The Bank Nifty Index witnessed a sideways trading session on the day of the weekly expiry and was unable to surpass the 50,000 mark, where the highest open interest is built up on the call side. The index needs to decisively surpass the 50,000 mark to gain further momentum towards the 50,500/51,000 levels. The lower-end support is placed at 49,400, and a break below this level will accelerate further selling pressure towards the 49,000 mark.
