The market continued to reel under selling pressure after major events like the 2019 Interim Budget and the RBI monetary policy, and closed lower for the third straight session on February 11.
Traders remain cautious ahead of important macro data like CPI inflation for January 2019 and factory data for December 2018, which is scheduled to be announced on February 12. Mixed global cues and no surprise in the December quarter earnings with scope of further downgrade dampened market sentiments.
The 30-share BSE Sensex declined 151.45 points to 36,395.03, while the Nifty 50 fell 54.80 points to 10,888.80 and formed the bearish candle which resembled a ‘Bearish Belt Hold’ kind of formation on the daily scale.
“The short term trend for the Nifty is negative. The market could find minor support at 10,850-10,800 levels in the next few sessions, but the support is unlikely to hold for long. Hence, any rise is going to be a sell on rise opportunity for near term,” Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at
HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives at Angel Broking said price-wise, the Nifty has successfully managed to defend the key support zone of 10,850–10,900.
“Going ahead, a move beyond today’s high of 10,931 would bring back some positivity in the market. In this scenario, we may see Nifty reclaiming 11,000 and beyond levels,” he added. On the flipside, 10,850 remains to be sacrosanct support, Chavan said.
The fall in broader markets was more than frontliners as the Nifty Midcap index lost 1.7 percent and Smallcap index shed 1.8 percent.
“As far as broader market is concerned, there were few massive drops seen in individual stocks; but unlike recent days, few handful of stocks did manage to climb smartly to confirm their near term base. It certainly bodes well and hence, one needs to be very fussy now while making a stock selection,” said Chavan.
