The equity market fell sharply on June 14 after India announced retaliatory tariffs on American goods. Banking & financials, auto and FMCG stocks fell the most.

The BSE Sensex plunged 289.29 points to 39,452.07 while the Nifty fell 90.70 points to 11,823.30 and formed bearish candle on daily and weekly scale. For the week, both benchmark indices declined 0.4 percent each.

"A long negative candle was formed on June 14 and the Nifty is placed near the crucial support of 11,770, which is a strong support level as per the concept of change in polarity," Nagaraj Shetti - Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.


"We observe a formation of head and shoulder type pattern as per daily timeframe chart (not a classical one) with the neckline placed at 11,770 levels. Hence, a decisive move below this neckline support could open up a potential downside pattern target of 11,525 in the near term (this pattern could activate only on a decline below the support of 11,770)," he said.

The near term trend of Nifty is rangebound with weak bias and the crucial lower supports to be watched for the next week is at 11,760, he added.

Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Senior Technical Analyst at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas also said the index still continues to hover around the key supports.

"In terms of the price patterns, the running triangular pattern looks intact with a mild throw under. The daily Bollinger Bands, being in a contraction phase, suggests the rangebound activity can continue in the next few sessions. The Nifty will be set for the next up move once the consolidation is over," he added.

The broader markets also fell in line with benchmarks. The Nifty Midcap index dropped 0.9 percent and Smallcap index 0.8 percent as five shares declined for every two shares rising on the NSE.
