Selling pressure in the last couple of hours of trade on April 10 wiped out all gains clocked on April 9, dragging the Sensex 354 points and the Nifty 50 below 11,600 levels.
Investors and traders turned cautious ahead of the first phase of general elections on April 11 and top technology companies’ quarterly earnings on April 12.
The BSE Sensex was down 353.87 points or 0.91 percent to close at 38,585.35 while the Nifty 50 fell 87.70 points to 11,584.30 and formed bearish candle on the daily scale.
“After showing a minor upside bounce in the last session, the Nifty slipped into weakness on Wednesday and closed the day lower. Alternative candle formation continued in the Nifty as per daily time frame chart (formation of positive and negative sessions alternatively). This pattern is signalling a sideways range movement in the market,” Nagaraj Shetti – Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst, HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
He said the short term trend of Nifty is choppy and as per the theory of alternative candle pattern, one may expect a minor upside bounce from the support in the next session.
India VIX moved up sharply by 4.19 percent to 21.13 levels.
A sudden spike in VIX indicates limited upside with a volatile swing in the market, experts said, adding Option band signifies a lower trading range in between 11,500 to 11,760 zones.
“Nifty has been consolidating in a narrow range of 11,550-11,700 since the past few trading sessions. In the short term, breach of 11,550 is expected to limit the upsides for the April series and push the index towards 11,300-11,350 levels,” Sahaj Agrawal of Kotak Securities said.
He advised accumulating on meaningful corrections for the larger trend which remains extremely strong.
