The market closed rangebound session on a flat note with a negative bias on September 29 as bulls preferred to take a breather after a run up in previous two trading sessions.
The BSE Sensex declined 8.41 points to 37,973.22, while the Nifty50 fell 5.10 points to 11,222.40 and formed bearish candle on the daily charts as closing was lower than opening tick.
"Nifty is placed at the immediate resistance of trend line, as per change in polarity at 11,240 and has struggled to sustain above that area on Tuesday. The complete filling of opening upside gap also signals a possibility of more consolidation with negative bias in the short term," Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
"The recent upside bounce from the lows of 10,800 could be considered as an upside bounce of a down trend and this up leg is expected to form a new lower top around 11,300-11,400, if it sustains above 11,250 levels in the near term. Tuesday's consolidation could rather signal a pause of a sharp upside bounce, than any sharp negative reversal at the highs," he added.
The broader negative chart pattern as per weekly chart is still intact and any upside bounce from here could be considered as a sell on rise opportunity in the near term, he advised.
The broader markets also closed moderately lower with the Nifty Midcap index falling 0.15 percent and Smallcap down 0.3 percent.
Among sectors, Bank and FMCG fell over a percent each, while Metal gained 2 percent.
