Benchmark indices on June 19 ended almost flat on the back of selective buying and selling in equities.

The BSE Sensex gained 66.40 points at 39,112.74 while the Nifty50 ended flat at 11,691.50 and formed bearish candle or 'High Wave' kind of pattern on daily charts.

"There was a bout of volatility near the resistance of 11,800 mark and Nifty failing to sustain above the key overhead resistance of 11,780-11,800 levels today could open up chances of further weakness in the market ahead," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, told Moneycontrol.

He said further decisive decline below the immediate support of 11,650 could result in Nifty filling the previous opening upside gap of May 20 around 11,425 levels, in the near-term.

Shabbir Kayyumi, Head of Technical Research at Narnolia Financial Advisors, said RSI divergence while formation of double bottom indicates short term bottom placed on lower time frame; however confirmation will come only above 11,790 levels.

The Nifty Midcap index was down a percent and Smallcap index fell 1.8 percent as breadth was in favour of bears. About five shares declined for every two shares rising on the NSE.

The sectoral trend was mixed with Nifty Auto index falling a percent and Pharma 1.6 percent while Bank index was flat.
