Manish Hathiramani, technical analyst with Deen Dayal Investments said: (international equity indices)  "The resistance of 14,950 has worked accurately for the Nifty. We failed to close above it. We need to get past 14,950-15,000  for an up move to commence.
 
"Thereafter it should be a bullish market which can take the index to 15,300-15,400. (international equity indices)  If we break 14,500, we can tumble to 14,200-14,300. It is a situation that requires patience and discipline. Traders need to be cautious."
 
The top gainers on the Sensex were Titan Company, Hindustan Unilever and the (international equity indices)  State Bank of India, while the major losers were Bajaj Finance, NTPC and Asian Paints
