Jayant Manglik of Religare Broking suggests keeping a check on leveraged positions.
With Sensex tumbling 491 points and Nifty slipping over 151 points, investors are looking over their shoulders as fear of India-US trade war looms large.
"With Monday's move, the bears have gained the upper hand from short term perspective. For the day, the index halted near the daily lower Bollinger Band, however strong momentum on the downside suggests that the band is unlikely to hold the Nifty for long," Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Senior Technical Analyst, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas, told Moneycontrol.
On the downside, the index is expected to fill up the gap of 11,591-11,426, which it had left during the May rally, he said, adding overall, the index is likely to touch a rising trendline drawn from the October low. "Thus the trendline target is near 11,200."
On the other hand, 11,800-11,850 shall now act as a key resistance zone, Ratnaparkhi said.
Jayant Manglik, President - Retail Distribution at Religare Broking, suggests keeping a check on leveraged positions.
"Nifty has immediate support at 11,650 and below that selling may intensify further," he said.
The broader markets fell in line with benchmarks. The Nifty Midcap index plummeted 1.17 percent and Smallcap index lost 1.58 percent. About three share declined for every share rising on the NSE.
