After showing sharp weakness on the backdrop of weak global cues on Monday, Indian stock market witnessed an excellent comeback on Tuesday and closed the day with hefty gains. Nifty 50 index finished 446 points higher at 17,759, BSE Sensex surged 1564 points and closed at 59,537 whereas Nifty Bank index shot up 1260 points and closed at 39,536 levels.
According to stock market experts, Nifty has regained most of its lost ground and is now placed near the important resistance of down trend line around 17850-17900 levels. After a failed upside breakout of this hurdle during mid part of Aug, the market is now preparing for a decisive upside breakout of that trend line hurdle. The formation of long bull candle of Tuesday could be an early signal of possible sharp upside breakout.

Speaking on Nifty 50 index, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "Nifty seems to have reversed the recent down trend sharply on the upside. Now, the bulls are ready to show big bang upside breakout of the resistance of around 16,900 levels by this week end or by next week. A decisive move above 17,900 levels could pull Nifty towards the next upside target of 18,300 to 18,400 in the next few weeks. Immediate support for NSE Nifty is placed at 17,600 levels."
