The Nifty50 closed below its crucial psychological level of 9,200 on Friday weighed down by geopolitical concerns. The index is trading near crucial support levels; hence, a bounce back on Monday cannot be ruled out.
The chart structure still remains intact but there are enough signs that the market is losing momentum which traders should watch out for. If the index slips below 9,150-9,163, momentum will shift entirely towards downside while a close above 9,250 could restore upward bias.
The threat of short-term reversal continues to loom large on the indices and investors who went long on the index can square off their positions and look at shorting the index with a target of around 9,000 and a stop of 9,250 levels, suggest experts.
