Indian market started on a strong note on Friday tracking positive global cues. The S&P BSE Sensex rallied more than 200 points while the Nifty50 rose above 17400 levels in the first 15-minutes of trade.

Sectorally, buying was seen in telecom, IT, banks, capital goods, and FMCG while some selling was seen in oil & gas, Energy, auto, and consumer durable space.

Experts are of the view that the Nifty50 could consolidate near 17,500 levels on the upside amid a rise in India VIX so far this week, a gauge of volatility in the stock market.

The formation of a broadening wedge pattern puts an end to the blistering series of up moves, but not necessarily the uptrend as such, suggest experts.

“We have stepped into a consolidation period with ample opportunities for traders on either side, especially given the rise in VIX,” Anand James – Chief Market Strategist at

, said.

“Favoured view also expects upside attempts to slow down on approach to 17,450-570 region and downside attempts to slow down on approach to the 17,220 vicinity. Directional moves may wait for 17570-17160range to be broken,” he added.
