Experts expect the market to move on positive side with Nifty likely reclaiming 11,000 levels soon.
The market snapped the four-day winning streak as the benchmark indices closed lower amid consolidation on January 10, driven by subdued global cues. But the Nifty 50 managed to hold the 10,800 levels.
The 30-share BSE Sensex fell 106.41 points to 36,106.50 while the Nifty 50 lost 33.60 points to 10,821.60, forming 'Bearish Belt Hold' pattern on the daily charts.
After current consolidation, experts expect the market to move on the positive side with Nifty likely reclaiming 11,000 levels soon.
"Since the beginning of January series, we witnessed long formation in Nifty futures and a decent amount of longs rolled over are also in the system. Stronger hands too turned net buyers in equities and index futures segment on Wednesday’s session. At the same time, index put writers continued adding a good amount of positions in ATM strike. Considering the above data points, we maintain our positive stands on the market and expect Nifty to soon surpass 11,000 mark," Sneha Seth, Derivatives Analyst at Angel Broking told Moneycontrol.
A 'Bearish Belt Hold' pattern is formed when the opening price becomes the highest point of the trading day (intraday high) and the index declines throughout the trading day making up for the large body. The candle will either have a small or no upper shadow and a small lower shadow.
Overall participants preferred to sit on sidelines in absence of fresh domestic trigger and caution ahead of TCS results announced after market hours on Thursday. Mostly sectoral indices traded in tandem with the benchmark index and settled marginally lower.
"Markets will react to the TCS results in early trades on Friday and then anxiety of another IT major, Infosys results would take over. In short, IT pack would lead the market in the next session," Jayant Manglik, President at Religare Broking said.
He reiterated cautious view and suggested traders to prefer hedged bets.
The broader markets outperformed frontline indices with Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices rising 0.4 percent each.
