The Nifty remained in the grip of bears throughout February 8. It closed below its crucial 5-days exponential moving average placed at 10,967 and made a bearish candle after forming a Doji candle that indicated a possible reversal in the trend.

Nifty opened at 11,023 and rose to an intraday high of 11,041, but then bears pushed the index below 11,000 to close at 10,943, down 125 points.

India VIX moved up 0.87 percent at 15.58. VIX needs to hold below 16 to extend Nifty's positive momentum with a hold above 10,985.

The 5-DEMA acted as crucial support for the index soon after it made a bottom around January 29-30. It breached the level on the downside on February 8.

Bank Nifty failed to surpass 27,500 and corrected towards 27,220. It has negated formation of higher lows of the last four sessions and is finding multiple hurdles between 27,500 and 27,750 from five weeks.

After the recent selling seen on D-Street, experts advise investors to use the rallies to create short positions unless Nifty recovers and sustains above 11,041 on the upside.
