"Nifty has pierced 14700 during the intra-day session and managed to close around it. Hence, traders would need to review the situation on Friday," said Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments.

"The market has formed bearish continuation formation, however, as the markets are range bound, till the Nifty/Sensex is not closing below the levels of 14600/48400, we would do a pullback towards, 14800/49000 levels," said Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities.
"The focus should be on cement, PSU banks and auto stocks if the market remains strong. Buy metal stocks if the market drops to 14500/48100 levels," Chouhan added.
