Healthy buying was witnessed in banking, finance and capital goods stocks.
Manish Hathiramani, technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments said: “The Index is trying hard to hold on to the 14,700 level. If we manage to keep below it, the Nifty could slide down to 14,500 and thereafter 14,300.
“On the upside there is a resistance patch at 15,000-15,100 and until that is not crossed, we remain bearish in the short term.”
