Realty, consumer durables, oil & gas and power were the lead gainers while IT closed with moderate declines.

  • The top Nifty gainers today were BHEL, ONGC, Reliance Infra and Bharti Airtel while the biggest losers included Sterlite Industries, Tata Power, BPCL and Wipro.

  • The Nifty is likely to face stiff resistance at 5650 and will find it difficult to go past that, says Mitesh Thacker, technical analyst, on ET Now. There is key support at 5545-5540 and if this is breached on the downside then we could see a fall of 70-80 points, he adds.

  • The upmove in the market is intact with sound support at 5535-5540, says Prakash Gaba, technical analyst, on Zee Business. If the support holds, then we could see the Nifty move up to 5646, he adds.
