Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities said, “Nifty on Wednesday managed to close above the psychological level of 12,000 which hints bulls are trying to gain momentum on every dip, now immediate support for Nifty is coming near 11,965-11,920 zone and resistance is coming near 12,090-12,130 zone.”
