Gaurav Ratnaparkhi of Sharekhan by BNP Paribas feels the index is expected to form another leg on the downside.
It was a weak start to the July series on June 28 as the bears retained power for a major part of the session as traders turned cautious ahead of the Union Budget week.
The BSE Sensex was down 191.77 points at 39,394.64, while the Nifty50 fell 52.60 points to 11,788.90 and formed a bearish candle on the daily charts. However, for the week, the index gained half a percent and formed a bullish candle on weekly scale.
"The Nifty is currently stuck in a high low range of 11,900-11,650 levels, and is currently showing weakness from near the upper end of the range. Technically, pattern formed on weekly scale could be considered as a high wave type pattern, which is currently placed at the crucial support of 11,650 levels (upper area of opening upside gap of 20th May)," Nagaraj Shetti – Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst, HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
He said the short term trend of Nifty remains rangebound. "We could expect further weakness in the early part of the next week, but are likely to see buying emerging from near the support of 11,700-11,650 again."
Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Senior Technical Analyst at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas also feels that the index is expected to form another leg on the downside. "The broader market indices are also likely to follow the suit. Thus traders are recommended to look for selling opportunities in the market."
The broader markets also fell in line with benchmarks as the Nifty Midcap index was down 0.36 percent and Smallcap index declined 0.2 percent. All sectoral indices closed in red barring FMCG and Realty.
