The market has breached crucial levels on the downside as it continued downtrend for the third consecutive session on November 11 following global inflationary pressure and increase in US bond yields. All sectoral indices, barring metals, closed in the red.
The BSE Sensex broke the 60,000 mark, falling 433.13 points to close at 59,919.69, while the Nifty50 ended below 18,000 levels, down 143.60 points at 17,873.60 and formed a bearish candle on the daily charts.
"Small negative candle was formed on the daily chart with minor lower shadow. Technically, this pattern indicates rangebound action in the market with weak bias. Minor lower shadow in the daily candle indicates an emergence of minor buying from the lower levels. The overall chart pattern signal a choppy movement in the market and may expect continuation of weakness with range bound action for short term," says Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.
He feels the short term trend of Nifty continues to be range bound with weak bias. "One may expect Nifty to show choppy movement with weak bias for the short term. Further weakness from here could push Nifty down to the important support of 17,600 levels. Immediate resistance is placed at 17,950 levels,"Shetti says.
The broader markets also traded in line with benchmark indices. The Nifty Midcap 100 index was down 0.82 percent and Smallcap 100 index fell half a percent.
