Yes Securities advised traders to remain on sidelines and wait for some stability to emerge around 10,800 i.e. confluence of support zone.

The market reversed all the gains clocked a day before and finished the session on August 7 sharply lower following a late sell-off.

The 35 basis points repo rate cut delivered by the Reserve Bank of India's Monetary Policy Committee in line with expectations and the measures listed out to boost the NBFC sector failed to lift sentiment.

The BSE Sensex fell more than 400 points from the day's high indicating that the rate cut and measures may not have been perceived to be enough to boost the slowing economy.

The index declined 286.35 points to close at 36,690.50 while the Nifty 50 dropped 92.80 points to 10,855.50, forming a bearish candle on the daily charts.

"The short term trend of Nifty is dicey. The Nifty not showing follow-through upmove post positive pattern could be an indication of uncertainty at the highs," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.

The recent low of 10,782 is going to be crucial to maintain positive bias. As long as this area is protected in the next couple of sessions, a possibility of upside bounce is higher, he added.

Yes Securities advised traders to remain on sidelines and wait for some stability to emerge around 10,800 i.e. confluence of the support zone.

The broader markets also fell in line with benchmark indices as the Nifty Midcap index lost 0.75 percent. Among sectors, Nifty Bank, Auto and Metal indices shed 1-2 percent.
