GRAND Draw on Apr 30 2011
After enjoying its best week of the calendar year, the Indian markets started off the new trading week with healthy gains. Last week's momentum spilled over into today's session, with the NSE Nifty breaching its 200 DMA (5691 levels). on an intraday basis. However, it was unable to sustain above the crucial technical level and ended just under it.
Banking, Auto, and Capital Goods stocks led the rally today. Select Mid-Caps were also in the groove. On the other hand, Pharma and Realty stocks were under pressure. The BSE Small-Cap stocks were rather subdued. The market breadth was actually weak, raising concern on the sustainability of the current rally.

We are entering an important trading week after the previous week’s spirited rally. Today’s start looks to be a positive one. The main Indian stock indices registered their best weekly gains of 2011. The breakout above 5500 has brought the Nifty within striking distance of its 200 DMA (~5680-5690). We might see accentuated buying in the near term if the Nifty is able to sustain above this critical level.
