Anticipating Positive Momentum: Nifty 50 and Sensex Set for Gains in February 16 Trading Session

As the global market trend remains positive, the Indian stock market is poised for a promising start today, with Nifty 50 and Sensex expected to open with gains. Gift Nifty also indicates a robust beginning, trading around 22,081 compared to Nifty futures’ previous close of 22,015.

In the previous session, both Nifty 50 and Sensex continued their upward trajectory, closing near intraday highs. The Sensex recorded a gain of 227.55 points, closing at 72,050.38, while Nifty 50 ended 70.70 points, or 0.32%, higher at 21,910.75.

Technical analysis by Nagaraj Shetti from HDFC Securities highlights the formation of a doji-type candle pattern, suggesting potential trend reversals. Nifty is on the verge of breaking above the minor downtrend line resistance at 21,900 – 21,950 levels. A decisive breach could open doors for new all-time highs around 22,150 levels.
