Indian market ended in the red on September 27, tracking weakness in other Asian markets.
The 30-share Sensex closed the day with a loss of 167 points, or 0.43 percent, at 38,822.57, with 20 stocks in the red, while the Nifty50 finished 59 points, or 0.51 percent, lower at 11,512.40. Among the 50 stocks in the index, 39 suffered losses.
"Mixed global cues in the wake of rising political uncertainty in the US and lingering uncertainty surrounding the US-China trade war hurt sentiments," said global financial firm Standard Chartered in a note.
However, both Sensex and Nifty gained over 2 percent for the week after Finance Minister Nirmala Sithamraman slashed the corporate tax rate on September 20.
Experts are of the view that the market may see some consolidation due to sharp gains during the previous week.
"Given the gigantic rally, the market is expected to cool down till the beginning of the result season," said Jimeet Modi, Founder & CEO of SAMCO Securities & StockNote.
"The Government has started hustling after taking a huge hit on its yearly revenue of Rs 1,45,000 lakh crore. The hunt for getting back the money from other sources has heightened and the divestment programs have been revived. This will bring vibrancy in capital markets and at the same time, suck away liquidity from the bourses which is a negative for the stock market," he added.
The Nifty50 has begun the consolidation phase after a massive rally. All short-term indicators have moved to overbought levels which cap the upside for the time being.
"Short interests have reduced with the month-end expiry and therefore significant upside is not expected in the near-term. A 50 percent retracement is expected before any fresh upmove. Traders can go long around 11,000-11,100 levels," Modi of SAMCO Securities said.
