According to pivot charts, the key support levels for the Nifty is placed at 11,603.47, followed by 11,536.13.
The market fell further on expiry of October derivative contracts as traders worried about global growth concerns due to rising coronavirus cases in Europe and the United States.
The Sensex declined 172.61 points to close at 39,749.85, falling for second consecutive session, on October 29. The Nifty fell 58.8 points to 11,670.80 and formed a small bullish candle which resembles an inverted hammer kind of pattern on the daily charts.
"A small positive candle was formed on October 29 with an upper shadow, which indicates a broader range movement with a negative bias in the market. The upper shadow signals a sell on rise opportunity for the day," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, told Moneycontrol.
"This above said pattern could not be considered as a downside breakout of the range and one may expect chances of an upside bounce in coming sessions, above 11,700 levels. The anticipated upside bounce could confirm a false downside breakout of the range and leave room for further upside in the near term. A decisive decline below 11,600 levels is expected to negate our bullish bias and result in further weakness in the market," Shetti said.
The overall market breadth continued to be negative. The midcap and smallcap indices closed the day 0.43 percent and 0.92 percent lower, respectively, while all sectoral indices, barring IT, closed in the red.We have collated 15 data points to help you spot profitable trades:
