Here’s a rundown of today’s expected market movements…
From a technical standpoint, the market commenced the day with cautious movements and gradually breached a crucial support level at 19,500 (65,200).
This breach generated additional selling pressure, ultimately leading to the formation of an extensive bearish candle on the daily chart.
This bearish candle signifies the potential for further weakness from the current market conditions. The short-term market structure continues to demonstrate fragility.
For day traders, it is crucial to observe 19,400 (64,900), which aligns with the 100-Day Simple Moving Average (SMA), as a pivotal resistance level.
Should the index descend below this mark, it could potentially slide to the range of 19,200-19,175 (64,400-64,300). In a more pessimistic scenario, the market may even experience a further decline to 19,000 or 18,900 levels.
A shift in the short-term sentiment might become evident should the index ascend beyond 19,400 (64,900), potentially initiating a rapid technical rebound towards 19,500-19,600 (65,200-65,500).
To manage risk effectively, it is advisable to contemplate reducing vulnerable long positions around the 19,500 level.
For investors, a prudent approach would be to consider buying opportunities within the range of 19,050 and 18,950.

The Nifty IT index has showcased a lower high at 33,000 levels, signaling a potential extension of the fall to 31,400 or 31,000. Market participants should brace for a period of weakness in the near term.
