Jayant Manglik of Religare Broking said Nifty has crucial support at 11,600 and its breakdown could trigger further fall.
The market ended a rangebound session in the negative on June 24 with the Nifty 50 closing a tad below 11,700 levels. However, the index managed to hold the lows made multiple times near 11,630-11,640 levels.
The broader markets also participated in the fall with the Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices declining 0.3-0.4 percent. About three shares declined for every two shares rising on the NSE.
The BSE Sensex slipped 71.53 points to 39,122.96, continuing the fall for a second consecutive session while the Nifty 50 dropped 24.40 points to 11,699.70 forming a bearish candle which resembles a Spinning Top kind of pattern on daily charts.
For the last few sessions, the Nifty has been trading in a range of 11,625 on the downside & 11,850 on the upside, but overall structure remains bearish, experts said.
"The larger picture shows that the index has been sliding down within a downward sloping channel. The recent bounce faced resistance near the upper channel line & the index is currently moving towards the lower end of the channel. The momentum indicators on various time frames are in agreement with the bearish price structure. Thus the Nifty is likely to maintain the downward trajectory going ahead," Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Senior Technical Analyst, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas told Moneycontrol.
On the downside, 11,625-11,591 is the key support zone to watch out for; once that breaks, the Nifty can tumble towards 11,250-11,200, he said.
Jayant Manglik, President - Retail Distribution, Religare Broking said Nifty has crucial support at 11,600 and its breakdown could trigger further fall. "We advise keeping positions on both sides in such scenario and waiting for a decisive break for the next directional move."
All sectoral indices except FMCG closed in the red with Nifty Metal and Realty falling a percent each.
