BSE Sensex declined 215.12 points to close at 54,277.72, while Nifty50 dropped 56.40 points to 16,238.20 and formed a bearish candlestick on daily charts. During the week, the index gained 3 percent and formed a pattern of bullish candles on the weekly scale.
“Technically, on the weekly charts, Nifty has established a strong resilience, indicating a significant increase in current levels. We are of the view that medium-term trends are rising and buying dips and sales at meetings could be a good strategy for position traders,” said Shrikant Chouhan, Vice President. Equity Technical Research eKotak Securities.
“The level of 16,150-16,050 will be a strong support for the index. Trading above the same, the uptrend wave is likely to continue up to 16,400-16,550 levels. Below 16,050, outgoing traders may choose to opt out of trading at longer positions,” he said.
Wide markets have been able to surpass estimates. The Nifty Midcap 100 index and the Smallcap 100 index received 0.06 percent and 0.04 percent, respectively.
