Growing concerns over coronavirus spread continue to batter financial markets across the world. Though the Nifty saw a brief intraday bounce back, it quickly got sold into and the market ended lower for the fourth consecutive day on February 26.

The Nifty50 finally settled at 11,678, down by 1 percent for the day. The broader markets, BSE Midcap and BSE Smallcap, were down by 1.34 percent and 0.82 percent.

Close

After a gap-down opening, the Nifty found support at 200-Day Moving Average, placed at 11,686, and then bounced back to fill the gap.

But fresh selling took the market lower to close below the long-term average. The post-budget day low of 11,614 is the immediate support for the market.

A break below it will see a continuation of decline, initially towards 11,490 and then 11,340 levels. On the upside, the Nifty needs to cross the high of February 26 of 11,800 for a bounce-back towards 12,000.

In the Nifty March monthly expiry options, the maximum open interest for Put is seen at strike price 11,800 followed by 11,700; while for Call, maximum open interest is seen at 12,000 followed by 12,500.
