The markets are again near the resistance zone of 15900 and if we can get past that on a closing basis, we are in for treat. Conquering the 15900 level would take the Nifty to 16100 which would prove to be the next pit stop for the index. As long as we do not break 15400, dips or corrections can be utilized to accumulate long positions for higher targets.

Following favourable economic outcome and positive Asian markets, domestic bourses traded positive today. Asian shares sparked a rally after better-than-expected Chinese economic data and a bounce back in Chinese tech stocks. Though June CPI inflation continued to remain above RBI’s tolerance level, it eased to 6.26% from 6.30% in the previous month giving some relief to the market. Industrial production (IIP) for May grew 29.3% YoY essentially due to a lower base.

Bulls were in cruise control today and market breadth was buoyant. Expectations of a good quarter for textile exporters aided by a weak rupee kept several companies in this space buzzing through the day. We also witnessed profit booking in several largecaps and high-quality midcaps that have had a good run-up in the last few months.
