Indian markets fell for the fifth consecutive day in a row on Monday.

The Nifty50 slipped below its 100-EMA as well as 11000 to close at 10,967
Weak rupee, higher crude oil prices, NBFCs woes weighed on markets which led massive sell off in markets. Investors lost around Rs 3 lakh crore on the BSE during the session as a fallout of this bearish move.
Technically, the index formed a Bearish Belt Hold pattern and there is a higher chance of a short coverings rally as we inch closer to expiry.
A close below Friday’s low of 10,866 could extend selling pressure while stability could come in if Nifty manages to reclaim 11,170.
Sectorally, realty, auto, finance and telecom stocks fell 3-5 percent while IT stocks outperformed, up 2 percent.
Top Sensex gainers: Tata Consultancy Services, Coal India, Infosys, Reliance Industries
Top Sensex losers: Mahindra & Mahindra, HDFC, IndusInd Bank, Adani Ports
The S&P BSE Smallcap index was down 2.7 percent while the BSE Midcap index plunged 2.4 percent.
The carnage in the market started from last week
Main factors: Depreciating Rupee, rising Crude oil prices which are trading near $80/bbl, and fears of default in housing finance companies led to sharp fall in their stock prices.
Some participants feared that because of IL&FS’s default, funding cost for NBFC’s will zoom and result into sharp deterioration in their margins.
Experts say that losses in leveraged positions are leading to selling in other stocks to cover those losses which in turn fueling further losses in markets.
