    Amol Athawale, Deputy Vice President - Technical Research, Kotak Securities:

    Investors are selling in droves and are simply following the trend in the world equity markets. The raging war between Russia & Ukraine has already made investors jittery about the near-term prospects. With commodity prices on the rise, corporates heavily dependent on commodities would have to battle rising prices and a falling currency, which would impact their operating parameters going ahead. 

    Technically, post sharp pull-back rally the Nifty took the resistance near 16800 and corrected sharply. It made a couple of attempts to clear the resistance of 16800 but due to constant profit booking at higher levels, it failed. 

    For the traders, 16350 -16400 would be the immediate resistance level. Above the same, Nifty could move up to 16550 and any further upside could lift the index up to 16700. 

    On the other side, as long as the index is trading below 16350, the selling pressure is likely to continue. Below which, the correction wave will continue till 16000-15900.

    Palak Kothari, Research Associate at Choice Broking:

    Technically, Nifty has formed a bearish candle on a weekly time frame which suggests weakness in the counter. Furthermore, index has been trading with lower highs-lower low formation from the last 5 weeks which suggest a southward journey in the upcoming day. 

    Moreover, the index has been sustaining below 200-DMA which adds weakness in the prices. A momentum indicator Stochastic & MACD suggested negative crossover on the daily chart, which pointed-out further bearishness in the index. 

    The index can test the physiological level of 16000 breaching below it can show 15800-15700 levels, while upside resistance comes at 16800 levels. On the other hand, Bank Nifty has support at 34000 levels while resistance at 35000 levels.

    Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Head of Technical Research, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas:

    The Nifty had recently stumbled near the level of 16800 & started sliding down. The selling pressure continued on March 04. Consequently, the index breached the swing low of 16203 as well as lower end of a downward sloping channel. The Nifty, however, received support in the lower territory; thus staging an intraday recovery but the intraday bounce fizzled out near the key hourly moving averages. 

    Nevertheless, the index managed to hold on to the level of 16200 on a closing basis. The overall structure shows that the Nifty is trading near multiple support parameters & it can witness recovery as long as it stays above 16200-16100 on a closing basis.

    Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities:

    Nifty slipped lower after a few days of consolidation on the daily timeframe; which will heighten the possibility of falling below the 16000 mark over the short term. Immediate support is seen at 16100-16000 bands. On the higher end resistance seen at 16500.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    Global bourses are witnessing a sharp sell-off as reports of Russian attack on Europe’s biggest nuclear plant in Ukraine kept tension levels elevated. 

    Rising oil prices along with uncertainties on supply change disruption have instilled fears that inflation could cross RBI’s tolerance level, though temporarily. The domestic market, however, trimmed its losses as buying was witnessed in IT and Pharma stocks.
