Nifty 50 November Futures (17,991)

BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty have opened the week on a positive note, tracking positive cues from the US market that ended on a high note on Friday. Sensex was trading at 60,534, up 0.95 per cent, while Nifty at 17,952 was up 0.93 per cent at the time of filing this report.

Nifty has risen above a key level of 17,800 and can now test 18,100—the next crucial resistance to watch. A strong rise past 18,100 will be very bullish and can take the index to further higher levels this week.

Global cues

In Asia, barring the Shanghai Composite (2,914.95, down 0.03 per cent), all major indices are up sharply. Nikkei 225 (27,519.69) is up 1.5 per cent. Hang Seng (15,008) and Kospi (2,290.67) are up 0.79 and 0.98 per cent, respectively.

In the US, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (32,861.8) had surged 2.6 per cent on Friday. The index rallied to 32,800 much faster than expected. The Dow has an important resistance at current levels and at 33,400. There are chances to see a corrective fall this week. We will have to wait and watch.
