April 13, 2022 / 08:31 AM IST

The selling pressure extended for a second consecutive session, pulling down the benchmark indices by more than six-tenth of a percent, while the pressure was more in broader space as the Nifty Midcap 100 index fell nearly 2 percent and Smallcap 100 index slipped 1.6 percent.

The BSE Sensex dropped nearly 400 points to 58,576, while the Nifty50 declined 145 points to 17,530 and formed small bearish candle which resembles Hammer kind of pattern formation on the daily charts.

"A reasonable negative candle was formed on the daily chart with minor lower shadow. Technically, this pattern indicates continuation of weakness in the market. After sliding below the initial support of 17,600 levels, Nifty is now placed at the next lower support of around 17,500-17,450 levels," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.

He further said though, Nifty placed at the support, still there is no indication of any convincing bottom reversal pattern at the lows and one may expect further weakness in the short term. "The market could possibly find support around 17,300 levels and is expected to bounce from the lows."

After showing resilience in the last few sessions, the overall market breadth has turned into negative on Tuesday and broad market indices have closed in the red. "This is not a good sign and one may expect further weakness ahead," said Shetti.
