The market remained lacklustre for the second consecutive week ended February 20 as investors continued to monitor the coronavirus outbreak which has raised fears over global growth. As a result, Moody's cut India's FY20 growth forecast to 5.4 percent (from 6.6 percent earlier), which also hit sentiments.

The BSE Sensex declined 0.21 percent to 41,170.12 and the Nifty50 fell 0.27 percent to 12,080.85, underperforming broader markets. BSE Midcap index gained 0.21 percent and Smallcap rose 0.44 percent during the holiday-shortened week.

Experts expect the market to remain volatile in the coming week as well on the back of derivative expiry on February 27 and coronavirus situation.

According to the pivot charts, the key support level for Nifty is placed at 12,050.87 followed by 12,020.93. If the index continues moving up, key resistance levels to watch out for are 12,131.37 and 12,181.93.

The important pivot level, which will act as crucial support for the index, is placed at 30,735.03 followed by 30,527.27. On the upside, key resistance levels are placed at 31,117.93 and 31,293.07.
