"The index has formed 'Spinning Top' candlestick pattern indicating lack of momentum on either side. Now Nifty has to close above 10,250 marks for further upside. The level 10,400 will work as immediate hurdle zone and support is seen around 10,130 mark," says Rajesh Agarwal of AUM Capital.

The Indian benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty closed lower as banking stocks extended losses. Among sectoral indices, the Nifty PSU Bank index ended 1.81 percent lower led by a fall in the shares of Canara Bank, IDBI Bank and Oriental Bank of Commerce.

The Nifty Metal index too ended 1.81 percent down due to a fall in shares of Steel Authority of India Limited, Jindal Steel & Power and Tata Steel.

In the global markets, Asian shares rallied and the safe-haven yen eased on Friday after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un offered to stop nuclear and missile testing and US President Donald Trump agreed to a meeting that could come before May.

Technical Outlook

Nifty

Nifty opened higher but failed to hold gains and remained in a trading range of 86 points. The index has formed 'Spinning Top' candlestick pattern indicating lack of momentum on either side. Now Nifty has to close above 10,250 marks for further upside. The level 10,400 will work as immediate hurdle zone and support is seen around 10,130 mark.
