Metal stocks like Tata Steel, Jindal Steel, JSW Steel, SAIL witnessed smart rally.

It remained in a range bound fashion for most part of the series in a broader trading range of 15,513 to 15,962 levels. During the series, it was finding sustained buying interest on any decline near to 15,550-15,600 zones while absence of follow up was clearly missing beyond 15,900 zones. Now, it has to hold above 15,750 zones to witness an up move towards 15,962 then 16,200 zones while on the downside support key exists at 15,600 and 15,500 levels.

India VIX fell down by 14.27% in this series from 15.10 to 12.94 levels.
