Stocks to Watch Today: The BSE Sensex settled with gains on eighth consecutive day on Tuesday, while NSE Nifty closed marginally lower after hitting its fresh all-time high amid mixed global market trends.
The 30-share BSE Sensex jumped 94.05 points or 0.14 per cent to close at 67,221.13. The Nifty lost all its gains and settled marginally lower by 3.15 points or 0.02 per cent at 19,993.20 in a volatile trade. It touched an all-time high of 20,110.35.
“Markets showed first signs of cooling off after seven straight sessions of gains as key indices ended mixed in a session marked with volatility in early trades but turned range-bound thereafter. Sluggishness in other Asian and European gauges also prompted investors to take a cautious route and resort to selective profit-taking,” said Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Research (Retail), Kotak Securities Ltd.
“Technically, the medium term texture of the market is still positive, but in the near future we could see a range bound activity. For traders, 19900-19850 could be the key support levels while 20100-20150 could be the immediate resistance areas for the bulls,” he added.
