Indian markets witnessed heavy selling pressure in Tuesday's session as Nifty slipped back once again towards 18,000 levels with bears taking a grip on the markets. Banking, energy and metals counters remained worst performer while auto and IT supported markets up to some extent.

From the derivatives front, Call writers added hefty open interest at 18,100 and 18,200 strike while Put writers saw shifting at lower bands.

We expect the market to consolidate at higher levels in the coming sessions with the bias likely to remain in favour of bulls. The consolidation phase can prevail within range of 18,200-17,800 levels on the broader side.

Traders should keep stock specific action on radar, as volatility is likely to grip markets in the coming week once again.
