The equity market continued to reel under selling pressure for the second consecutive session on June 1 with the Nifty50 falling 62 points to 16,523 and the BSE Sensex declining 185 points to 55,381, dragged by technology, pharma, and FMCG stocks.
The Nifty index closed below opening levels and hence formed a bearish candle on the daily charts, underperforming frontline indices. The Nifty Midcap 100 index gained 0.04 percent and Smallcap 100 index rose 0.28 percent.
The market also remained volatile for the second straight session with India VIX rising 1.79 percent to 20.85 levels, indicating the discomfort for bulls going ahead.
"A small negative candle was formed on the daily chart with upper and lower shadows. Technically, this pattern indicates a formation of a high wave type candle pattern, which displays high volatility in the market," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said.
He further said normally, such high wave formations after a reasonable upmove or down moves act as an impending trend reversal. But, having formed this pattern within a range movement, the predictive value of this pattern could be less, Shetti added.
He feels the near-term uptrend of the Nifty remains intact and present consolidation or minor weakness could be considered as a buy-on dips opportunity for the short term.
The market could shift into another 1 or 2 sessions of range move or minor weakness, before showing a sharp upside bounce from the lows, the market expert said, adding the near-term upside target remains intact at 16,800 levels.
