On January 10, the equity benchmarks exhibited a notable recovery in the final hour of trade, ultimately closing higher and extending their winning streak for the second consecutive session, driven by gains in heavyweight stocks. After a flat start amid weak global cues, the market traded sideways as investors exercised caution ahead of the earnings season and the release of inflation data. However, a surge in buying activity in the final hour propelled the indices to close near the day's high. In terms of sectors, healthcare, information technology, and metal witnessed a rise of 0.4% each, while the oil & gas index experienced a 0.5% decline.
NIFTY: The index opened 16 points lower at 21,529 and made a high of 21,642 before closing at 21,618. Nifty has formed a small bullish candlestick pattern on the daily chart. Its immediate resistance level is now placed at 21,680 while immediate support is at 21,575.
