Sunil Shankar Matkar

After a volatile session, indices closed marginally in red on May 31. However, during the week, it gained on hopes of big bang reforms from the newly formed Modi government.

Nifty fell 23.10 points to 11,922.80 after Modi government allocated cabinet portfolio on May 31, forming bearish candle on daily charts while for the week, the index gained 0.66 percent and formed small bullish candle on the weekly scale. For May, the index gained 1.5 percent.

Experts said that unless 12,041—the record high that Nifty hit during election result week—is crossed, sharp upside momentum won't be possible in the near term.


"Though Nifty fell on May 31, there is no indications of any significant reversal pattern as per smaller timeframe chart. The buying is still emerging near the supports," Nagaraj Shetti – Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst, HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.

He said the formation of upper shadow around 12,040 in the last couple of weeks signals an emergence of selling pressure near the new highs; this pattern could possibly result in a minor weakness or a range movement for the next week.

Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Senior Technical Analyst, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas also said the bearish potential remains intact unless the hurdle zone of 12,000-12,041 is crossed.

Among sectors, all indices closed in the red barring IT that gained a percent. Nifty Midcap index fell 0.2 percent and Smallcap index lost 1.2 percent.
