The market started off day on a robust note but the end was pathetic on May 13 as the benchmark indices lost all its gains in last hour of trade and closed with moderate losses weighed down by banking & financial services, metal and select technology stocks.

The BSE Sensex lost nearly 1,000 points from day's high to close with 137 points loss at 52,794, and the Nifty50 failed to hold on to psychological 16,000 mark, down 26 points at 15,782, and formed bearish candle on the daily charts.

"The way Nifty has given up around 300 points from the intraday high of 16,083 is hinting at a lack of conviction on the part of bulls about the sustainability of the upmove at higher levels," Mazhar Mohammad, Founder & Chief Market Strategist at Chartviewindia said.

The only positive thing remains the fact that the advance decline ratio almost remained decisively in favour of bulls who were able to safeguard the intraday low of last Thursday's session present around 15,735 levels, he added.

More than two shares advanced for every share declining on the NSE, helping the Nifty Midcap 100 and Smallcap 100 indices rise a percent each.

Close

Hence, Mazhar Mohammad feels, going forward, it remains critical for the Nifty50 to sustain above the said low (15,735) as the breach of this can eventually drag down the index towards 15,400 levels where some support is visible.

On the upsides, strength shall not be expected unless Nifty manages a close above 16,000 mark for couple of sessions, he said.

For time being it looks prudent for market participants to confine themselves to the fences, he advised.
