The market fell sharply on December 10 with the Sensex losing more than 700 points after mixed outcomes from exit polls. Weak global cues amid rising tensions between the US and China also dampened market sentiment.

The Nifty50 closed below psychological 10,500 levels, forming small bearish candle on the daily charts on Monday. Traders retained their cautious stance ahead of outcome of five states' elections which is scheduled to be announced on December 11, and after Urjit Patel resigned as RBI governor.

"The short term trend of Nifty is dicey. All eyes on tomorrow's 5 states assembly election results, which are expected to be out completely by noon," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC securities said.


Hence, a 10,450 levels is going to be a make or break situation for the bulls to hold on a defense, he added.

Kotak said if the BJP wins Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan (3-0) or Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh (2-1) then there could be a moderate market rally, subject to global developments with the market ascribing a higher probability of the BJP winning the national elections in April-May 2019.

However, if BJP loses all the three states (0-3) or loses Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan (1-2) then there may be a sharp market correction as the market will likely take a dim view of the BJP's prospects in the next national elections given the large contribution of these three states to the BJP's 2014 win, according to Kotak.

The Nifty50 fell 205.20 points or 1.92 percent to close at 10,488.50 and the 30-share BSE Sensex plunged 713.53 points or 2 percent to 34,959.72. The Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices were down 2 percent each.

VK Sharma, Head PCG & Capital Markets Strategy, HDFC Securities said the RBI governor's resignation alone has the ability to knock off 200 points from the Nifty.

All sectoral indices closed in the red with the Nifty Bank, Auto, FMCG, IT, Metal, Pharma and Realty falling 1-3 percent.

Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Senior Technical Analyst, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas told Moneycontrol that the bears now have an upper hand on the index.

"In terms of the Fibonacci retracement, the Nifty has so far retraced 50 percent of the November bounce. Subsequent level on the downside will be the 61.8 percent retracement mark i.e. 10,362. The larger picture shows that the Nifty is poised to test the recent low of 10,005," he said.

India VIX moved up sharply by 10.85 percent at 20.60 levels. Volatility has closed at recent highest zone since October 31, 2018.
