Sunil Shankar Matkar

Rising crude oil prices and worries over June quarter earnings pulled the market lower on July 10. The Nifty 50 ended a tad below 11,500 level, for the first time since May 17, 2019.

Experts expect some consolidation to continue at current levels as long as the index holds 11,450 levels, before seeing a strong bounce back.

The BSE Sensex was down 173.78 points at 38,557.04 while the Nifty50 fell 57 points to 11,498.90 and formed bearish candle on daily charts as bears are holding a tight grip in the market.


"11,450 remains a critical level for the index, Expect some consolidation around current levels before the index gives a bounce back towards previous highs. A breach of 11,450 is expected to invite further selling pressure pushing the index towards 11,000-11,100," Sahaj Agrawal, Head of Derivatives, Kotak securities told Moneycontrol.

He expects volatility to remain high for the near term with private banking stocks expected to outperform and some buying interest seen in the defensive space.

Chandan Taparia, Associate Vice President | Analyst-Derivatives at Motilal Oswal Financial Services said until Nifty holds below 11,600-zone it could drift towards the next major support of 11,420 level while on the upside hurdles are seen at 11,720 and then 11,777 zones.

The broader markets fell more than frontliner indices as the Nifty Midcap index declined 1 percent and Smallcap index slipped 0.7 percent. About two shares declined for every share rising on the NSE.

All sectoral indices closed in red with Nifty Auto, Metal, PSU Bank and Realty falling more than a percent each.
