Benchmark indices declined sharply on the very first day of the week (June 15) as bears dominated. Indian equities fell in line with global peers due to rising coronavirus cases, which investors fear could delay an economic recovery.
The Sensex slipped 552.09 points, or 1.63 percent, to close at 33,228.80, dented by banking and financial stocks.
The Nifty dropped 159.20 points, or 1.60 percent, to 9,813.70 and formed bearish candle, which resembles an Inside Bar, on the daily charts.
"Going forward, 9,544 would act as a strong support for the index and we may see an upmove towards 10,000 and 10,200 levels. Traders are advised to look for buying opportunities on every dip," Arpit Beriwal, Assistant Manager | Analyst-Technical at Motilal Oswal Financial Services, told Moneycontrol.
Despite the fall in the benchmark index, the market breadth remained neutral as there was some buying interest in smallcap and midcap counters.
Considering the recent run up in benchmark indices, Ajit Mishra, VP - Research at Religare Broking, feels some consolidation cannot be ruled out in the near term as the market would await more data on how demand pans out post the gradual re-opening of the economy.
