The market continued its record high run for yet another session after a decisive breakout. Experts expect the momentum to continue in the near term, but with consolidation and volatility. The BSE Sensex spiked 759 points to 73,328, led by technology, banks, and Reliance Industries. The Nifty 50 jumped 203 points to 22,098, forming a bullish candlestick pattern with a long lower shadow on the daily timeframe, indicating buying interest at lower levels.

The bullish candlestick pattern indicates a confirmation of a sharp upside breakout of an important hurdle. If Monday's opening upside gap remains unfilled at 21,900 levels for the next 2-3 sessions, it could be considered a bullish runaway gap, typically formed in the middle of sustainable uptrends. The next upside levels to be watched are around 22,200-22,300, with immediate support at 22,000 levels.

Nifty and Bank Nifty Levels:

The Nifty is likely to face resistance at 22,111, followed by 22,153 and 22,211. On the downside, support levels are 22,001, 21,965, and 21,907. The Bank Nifty extended its uptrend for the fourth consecutive session, reaching 48,158, with resistance levels at 48,197, 48,339, and 48,500, and support at 47,916, 47,816, and 47,655.
