Indian markets resumed their southward journey after falling by about 1 percent in the previous week. The S&P BSE Sensex was down by more than 200 points while the Nifty50 failed to hold on to 11900-11880 levels.

Banking stocks remained under pressure throughout the trading session after the State Bank of India (SBI) reported bad loan divergence of Rs 11,932 crore for the last financial year, the country's largest lender said in a notification to exchanges. The stock closed 1.04 percent lower at Rs 313.45.


Let’s look at the final tally on D-Street – the S&P BSE Sensex fell 247 points to 40,239 while the Nifty50 closed with losses of 80 points to 11,856.

Sectorally, the public sector, power, metal, and banking stocks remained under pressure.

On the institutional front, FPIs were net sellers in Indian markets for Rs 366 cr while the DIIs were net buyers to the tune of Rs 338 cr, provisional data showed.

Technical View:

The index formed a bearish candle on daily charts

It closed below its crucial swing low of last week of 11,888 which has now opened room for further downside till 11740 (50-SMA)

Before slipping towards 11749, big support is placed near 11800 levels.

The index closed near its intraday low hence in case it fails to hold onto 11844 on Wednesday, chances of further selling pressure could increase.

For time being stability and upsides shall not be expected unless Nifty closes above 11953 levels.

Intraday traders can look to short below 11850 levels for a target of 11790 with a stop above intraday high, experts suggest.

Three levels to watch – 11749, 11844, 12081
