Trade setup for Tuesday: Top 15 things to know before Opening Bell

Having slowed down of downside momentum and placed at the crucial supports, one may expect chances of upside bounce from the lower levels, says Nagaraj Shetti of HDFC Securities.

October 25, 2021 / 11:00 PM IST

It was a volatile session but the market managed to eke out gains and snapped four-day losing streak on October 25, supported by banking and financials. Bank Nifty ended at record closing high, whereas IT, FMCG and Auto stocks were under pressure.

The BSE Sensex rose 145.43 points to close at 60,967.05, while the Nifty50 gained 10.50 points at 18,125.40 and formed bearish candle which resembles Hammer kind of pattern formation on the daily charts.

"A small negative candle was formed with lower shadow on the daily chart, beside the similar candle of Friday. Technically, this pattern indicate a rangebound action with minor upside recovery from the lows. This is not a convincing attempt by bulls to make a comeback," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.

He feels the short term trend of Nifty is rangebound with minor positive bias. "Having slowed down of downside momentum and placed at the crucial supports, one may expect chances of upside bounce from the lower levels. Any failure to sustain the upside bounce or a decisive move below 17,950-17,900 levels could extend sharp weakness for the short term."

A confirmation of upside reversal by positive close could open an upside bounce in the market, according to him.

Close

The broader markets remained under pressure with the Nifty Midcap 100 index falling 1.7 percent and Smallcap 100 index declining 2.34 percent.
