Nifty50 lost 5.6 percent, or over 600 points, for the week ended October 5 to record its biggest weekly loss in the last 26 weeks. The Nifty index has been making lower highs and lower lows on the weekly scale and has now fallen by around 1,500 points in the last 5 weeks.
The index formed a bearish candle on daily charts on Friday and on the weekly scale as well which suggests that bears are having a tight grip on the market.
The Nifty index broke below major levels like 61.80 percent retracement at 11,650, maximum Put OI congestion zones of 11,500-11,450, 50 Weekly EMA and is now gradually drifting lower with the higher pace of selling pressure, suggest experts.
India VIX is now hovering around 19.73 and is moving upwards from last three consecutive weeks which is not a good sign for the bulls. On the options front, maximum Put OI is placed at 10,500 followed by 10,700 strikes while maximum Call OI is at 11,000 followed by 11,200 strikes.
“As long as it holds below 10,500 zones, Nifty may continue to extend its weakness towards 10,200 and may even retest 10,000 levels while on the upside, medium-term hurdle is shifting from 10,850 to 10,650 zones,” Chandan Taparia, Derivatives and Technical Analyst at Motilal Oswal Securities told Moneycontrol.
“Most of the sectorial indices were in pressure in the last week while many heavyweights also fell down sharply. Now till index doesn’t take a pause from selling mode by crossing any immediate hurdle zones, don’t go for bottom fishing, as sharp cut of 15 percent from higher zones have changed the price structure of most of the heavyweight and mid and small caps stocks, upside seems to be capped for time being,” he said.
Selective IT, few Metal and Pharma counter may see some support based buying while most of the Auto, FMCG, Oil & Gas, Mid and Small cap stocks may continue their downward journey.
