From the recent low below 6000 spot, Nifty has managed to bounce back over 200 points. With good support at 6120-6140 spot (Sensex support at 20680), Nifty may continue moving up. Target of 6200 spot (projected at 6130 spot in last week ) remains near now. However, traders should note that upside potential is limited with the market moving towards its February F&O expiry day.
Secondly, the interesting thing is whether Nifty can touch 6260 spot to fill the gap created almost 1 month ago.
