The global market sell-off and reaction to state election exit polls led to a sharp gap-down opening for the domestic equity markets on December 10. The markets were unable to see a reasonable bounce back and closed near the lows of the day.
The market breadth on NSE saw four shares declining for every advance. The broader indices - BSE MidCap and SmallCap were down by 1.84 percent each for the day.
After the gap-down opening, the Nifty traded in a narrow range for the rest of the session. The index closed in the support zone of 10,490-10,440, which was the minor swing lows on the up move.
A break below 10,440 could take the index towards the next support which is seen at 10,250-10,200. The immediate level on the upside is seen at 10,560-10,600 and above that at 10,750.
In the Nifty options, the maximum open interest for Puts is seen at strike price 10,000 followed by 10,200; while for Calls it is seen at strike price 11,000 followed by 10,700.

India VIX witnessed 10 percent to close at 20.44. It has been consolidating between 17 and 22 for the last couple of weeks. Further, a rise in India VIX is going to accelerate the decline on D-Street. VIX needs to move below 17 for markets to stabilise.
