The BSE Sensex was down 18.82 points at 52,861.18, while the Nifty50 fell 16.10 points to 15,818.30 and formed Gravestone Doji kind of pattern on the daily charts.
“A small body candle was formed with long upper shadow on the daily timeframe chart. Technically, this pattern indicate a formation of ‘Gavestone Doji’. Normally, formation of such doji pattern at the hurdle/after the reasonable upmove could signal downward reversal in the underlying, post confirmation,” said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.
Hence, bulls need to be cautious about long positions at the highs and subsequent weakness from here is likely to bring bear’s into action, he added.
He feels the short term uptrend of Nifty seems to have encountered profit booking around 15,900 levels again. “Further weakness on Wednesday could confirm negative reversal and that could open another round of downward correction in the market from highs. A move above doji at 15,915 could only negate this bearish pattern. Immediate support is placed at 15,730,” he said.
The broader markets also closed in red. The Nifty Midcap 100 index fell 0.05 percent and Smallcap 100 index declined 0.66 percent.
