"Markets witnessed a sharp rally in todays' trading session, on the back of positive global cues, and strong upmove in the banking and financial stocks. The benchmark Index Nifty 50 closed @ 11,873, up 110 points. Advances outnumbered declines by almost 2:1. Amongst the Top 3 Nifty gainers were Icici Bank, Axis Bank and Nestle whereas Eicher Motors, Hero Motocorp and Cipla were the Top 3 Nifty losers. Overall, the uptrend remains intact but we are likely to see enhanced volatility in coming weeks, with crucial support for the Nifty seen around 11600-11650 levels whereas resistance is seen around 12000-12050 zone."
