The market wiped out the two-day gains from the previous sessions and saw the biggest single-day fall in the past 30 days on August 13, dented by weak domestic and global cues. Reliance Industries’ 10 percent rally, however, restricted the losses to some extent.
The BSE Sensex plunged 623.75 points or 1.66 percent to 36,958.16, while the Nifty50 lost 183.80 points or 1.65 percent to 10,925.90 and formed a large bearish candle, resembling a Long Black Day-kind of formation on daily charts.
“The short term trend of Nifty seems to have reversed sharply, after a small rise. There is possibility of more weakness in the next one or two sessions and the Nifty could retest the recent swing low of 10,782 level,” Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities told Moneycontrol.
He said that on the downside, the 10,780-10,700 level is going to be an important support zone for the market in the near term. As long as this area is protected, there is a chance of an upside bounce again from the lows, Shetti added.
According to Romesh Tiwari, Head of Research at CapitalAim, with no clarity about relief measures on surcharge tax on FPI and stimulus for other sectors including autos, the Indian market could witness further selling pressure on negative global markets.
The broader market also saw heavy selling pressure with Nifty Midcap and Smallcap indices falling 2.17 percent and 1.6 percent, respectively. Among sectors, Nifty Bank, Auto, FMCG and IT were hit hard, losing between 2 and 4 percent.
