Several major sectoral indices saw selling pressure at higher levels, with the FMCG index being the biggest loser, declining by over 1.75%.
Today, Indian share markets are trading on a mixed note following the trend on Gift Nifty.
At the time of writing, the BSE Sensex is trading lower by 9 points. Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty is trading up by 6 points..
Among stocks, JSW Steel and Hindalco are the top gainers from the Sensex, while ITC and Asian Paints are the top losers.
Here’s a rundown of today’s expected market movements…
Technically, the Nifty index faced selling pressure at sustained higher levels after a slow start yesterday.
On the intraday chart, it is forming a lower top, and on the daily chart, it has formed a small bearish candle, indicating a negative sentiment.
Analysts believe that the index is likely to head towards 19600 or 19500 levels.
If the market fails to break the 19650 level, it may move back towards 19800, which is the ultimate resistance level for the market.
However, if the index falls below 19650, it may slide further towards 19600-19500 levels. On the other hand, if the index crosses the 19800 level, it may extend a pullback towards 19850-19900.
Caution is advised, and traders should monitor the key support and resistance levels mentioned in the analysis.
Be prepared for the possibility of further downside towards 19600 or 19500 levels, but also be watchful for a potential pullback towards 19800 if the market holds above 19650.
The Bank Nifty closed below the level of 46000, signalling a potential decline towards 45700/45600 levels.
On the higher side, it would face a hurdle at 46200.
The Nifty IT index closed at an unchanged level. The next level to watch out for would be 29700, with resistance at 30000.
All in all, caution is advised for Nifty, and traders should monitor the key support and resistance levels.
In the Bank Nifty, consider short positions with targets around 45700/45600 levels. And for the Nifty IT index, be a buyer in select stocks with a medium-term view in the Technology sector.
Stay tuned for further market updates.
See you tomorrow!
