Hopes pushed by a booming economic recovery and also fuelled by COVID-19 vaccine also boosted the investor sentiment. “We finally achieved the 13,000 level. It is heartening to see that the Nifty is maintaining above it. The markets would attempt 13,100-13,200 in this rally up which would be a significant resistance zone. We have good support at 12,700 so any dip can be utilised to accumulate positions for a target of 13,100-13,200” said Manish Hathiramani, Proprietary Index Trader and Technical Analyst, Deen Dayal Investments.
