Finally, the market has broken the boring trading range decisively. The best part of Tuesday’s spectacular session was the contribution from large-cap companies. The Nifty Midcap and Small cap index closed in the negative territory while Nifty IT, Bank Nifty and FMCG indices managed to deliver gains of more than 1.50 per cent. On a closing basis, the market closed above the level of 15,900 after the consolidation of the last two months and here onwards earlier resistance 15,900 would act as major support for the market. Any correction to 15,900/15,950 levels would be an opportunity to re-enter the market. Above 16,000 levels, the Nifty is heading for the levels of 16,270 with a minor resistance at 16,200.
