Indian market closed mixed for the week ended September 18, thanks to mixed global cues, rising cases of COVID-19 across the world, and geopolitical tensions between India and China.

Although a lot of action was seen in the small & midcap space, which according to experts, will continue in the coming week as well.


Nifty consolidated in a narrow range last week. 11,300-11,450 will act as crucial support for the index in the September F&O expiry week.

Sensex closed flat while Nifty50 was up 0.35 percent. BSE Small-cap index surged more than 5 percent and the S&P BSE Midcap index closed with gains of 2.6 percent for the week ended September 18.

Nifty is consistently facing selling pressure above 11,600 levels. Hence, that would be an important hurdle to cross for the index, suggest experts.

“We participated in an upward move but towards the fag end, we once again turned a bit cautious as we still believe that Nifty doesn’t have enough strength to go pass the sturdy wall of 11,650-11,700 soon. We must either go through some time-wise or price-wise correction before heading towards the 12,000-mark,” Sameet Chavan, Chief Technical & Derivatives Analyst at Angel Broking told Moneycontrol.

“For the coming week, 11600-11650-11700 remains to be a cluster of resistance; whereas on the lower side, 11450-11380 are to be seen as crucial supports. Any aggravation below these points would result in an extended correction in our market,” he said.
