The market saw an attempt to break above the resistance level of 15,100 on the Nifty 50 Index. However, the market was unable to maintain that level and gave up its early gains, ending the day slightly positive. The market’s projected levels are likely to be between 14,900 and 15,250, and maintaining above 14,900 will be critical for the short-term market scenario. According to Ashis Biswas, head of technical analysis at CapitalVia Global Research, momentum indicators like RSI and MACD will continue to improve in favor of a positive outlook, and traders should see a breakout above 15,250 as an opportunity to create new long positions.
