Indian market continued its losing streak and once again ended in the red with Nifty50 slipping below 11,800 levels in absence of any fresh positive triggers on February 25.
The market could not manage to hold at higher levels on the back of weak global markets as coronavirus is still hurting the sentiment across the globe.
On the derivative front once again, call writers were seen adding hefty open interest at 11900, and 12000 call strikes which point towards limited upside moving forward.
From the technical front, both Nifty and BankNifty are currently trading at crucial support levels as both the indices are now close to their 200-Days Exponential Moving Average on the daily interval which is placed around 11,700, and 30,100 respectively.
Any decisive move below these levels could trigger further sell-off into the markets while on the higher side 11,900 and 30,700 are immediate resistance levels.
In the coming sessions, we expect markets to remain volatile as the tug of war between bull and bear is likely to continue.
