Looking ahead to March 4, analysts, including Jatin Gedia from Sharekhan and Ajit Mishra of Religare Broking, provided insights into potential market movements.

Gedia highlighted Nifty’s breakout from a running triangle pattern on the daily chart, signaling the initiation of a new bullish phase.

He anticipated Nifty reaching levels of 23,000–23,100 in the short term, with support seen in the zone of 21,900–21,860.

Meanwhile, Mishra emphasized a “buy on dips” strategy until the support of 21,900 is breached.

He anticipated Nifty reaching 22,800 and highlighted the continuing significance of the banking sector in maintaining the current uptrend.

Additionally, rotational buying in other sectors was expected, with traders advised to focus on select stocks and prefer major indices and large midcap counters for long trades.
