The BSE Midcap and Smallcap indices gained 0.99 per cent and 0.71 per cent respectively.

Author’s View: 14,900 will act as resistance for Nifty. If Nifty closes above 14,900 then we may see a continuation in the bull rally till 15,200 level. Fresh long position should only be initiated if Nifty successfully closes above 14,900.
