High-level trading pressures eroded market gains from late trading and equity indicators resolved Friday’s trade with moderate losses.
IBSE Sensex adjusted 66.23 points to 52,586.84, while Nifty50 fell by 15.50 points to 15,763 forming a bearish candle resembling a Shooting Star pattern on daily charts. The index dropped 0.6 percent during the week, testifying to Hammer pattern formation on the weekly scale.
“Daily price performance has created a small bearish candlestick holding any shadows indicating volatility on each side. The short-term and medium-term trend remains sidelined at around 15,900-15,500 levels,” said Rajesh Palviya, VP – Technical and Derivative Research at Axis Securities .
He also said that any violation of the support area within 15,730 levels could result in a profit booking of up to 15,650-15,550 levels.
However, the next high levels will be observed around 15,880 levels, and any sustainable movement above 15,880 levels could create momentum at 15,950-16,000 levels, he added.
Wide markets have improved their rating indicators with the Nifty Midcap 100 index rising 1.1 percent and the Smallcap 100 index gaining 0.44 percent.
