The Bank Nifty index skyrocketed 1018 points and closed at 28,785 levels.

Speaking on the current market trend Sumeet Bagadia, Executive Director at Choice Broking said, “The market is overall bullish and Nifty has closed above 11,300 levels, which had been its strong resistance. If the Nifty opens above the 11,300 levels and sustains above this level, then we can expect Nifty to touch 11,500 in the coming trade sessions.”
