S&P BSE SENSEX: The index has gained over 3,000 points in the past two sessions. The rally comes on the back of a sharp cut in corporation tax announced by the government during market hours on Friday. On the techncial charts, the trend line breakout with huge volumes suggests a strong upward momentum for the index. The index had witnessed 10 per cent correction from June, 2019 and an upside of over 5 per cent in the past two sessions has strengthened the positive view. The level of 39,750 stays as an immediate resistance with support coming at 38,100 and 37,800.  CLICK FOR CHART VIEW

NIFTY 50: The index has scaled above its 200-days moving average (DMA) with the strong volume and stills holds promise. The formation on the charts can be noted as an 'Inverse Head and Shoulder /quadruple bottom' – four bottoms / consolidation breakout. Such moves not only boost the sentiment, but also gives opportunities to investors to add positions on any correction.
