Equity benchmarks Sensex and the Nifty hit their fresh record highs of 53,126.73 and 15,915.65, respectively, in intraday trade on June 28 but failed to hold altitude and ended lower amid subdued global cues.
Sensex lost 189 points, or 0.36 percent, to end at 52,735.59 while the Nifty settled 46 points, or 0.29 percent, lower at 15,814.70.
“The Nifty50 has witnessed strong resistance at 15,900 which means going forward also 15,900 will act as a strong hurdle. As long as we don’t see a decisive close above 15,900 we may not see an aggressive northward move. Support is coming near 15,775-15,675 zone,” said Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities.
