The market continued to see relentless selling pressure between October 1 and 5, with the Nifty falling 5.6 percent to close a tad above 10,300 levels. The surprise move on rates by Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI’s) Monetary Policy Committee (MPC), the consistent fall in the rupee and crude volatility attributed to the selling pressure.
The Nifty 50 closed at a six-month low on October 5, making a large bearish candle on the daily as well as weekly charts.
Experts said the sharp fall in the last few sessions indicated that there could be a relief rally in the coming week, but if it corrects further it could break the psychological 10,000 level as well.
After opening lower at 10,514.10, the Nifty 50 gradually extended losses as the day progressed to fall below 10,300 and hit an intraday low of 10,261.90 in late trade. The index closed 282.80 points down at 10,316.50.
“In line with projections Nifty50 continued its southward journey as it registered a large bearish candle before signing off the session. Even on weekly charts, it’s a fifth consecutive Bear candle suggesting the market may be stretching more on the downside, hence can attract some relief rally going forward,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research and Trading Advisory, Chartviewindia.in told Moneycontrol.
He added, to logically conclude its corrective structure, the Nifty 50 should move below 9,950 levels.
“In between 10,300 is a decent support from where it recoiled in Friday’s session after hitting an intraday low of 10,261 levels. If this level is breached then the next target on downside shall be towards 9,950 below which there will bright chance of one corrective structure getting culminated,” he explained.
In case of a pull back attempt, he feels the initial hurdle can be expected around 10,550 levels. “If bulls manages a close above the said level then the relief rally can be expected to get extended upto 10,850 levels.”
India VIX moved up by 4.32 percent to 19.73 levels. Volatility is not cooling down which is not giving the relief to bulls and suggests a tight bear grip in the market, experts said.
