The market remained extremely volatile at all times and was finally established on August 11. Metal stocks passed with more than 3 percent profit, and sales were reflected in pharma, select banks and currencies, shares of FMCG and IT.
The BSE Sensex fell 28.73 points to 54,525.93, while the Nifty50 rose by 2.20 points to 16,282.30 and formed a bearish candle-like pattern of the Change Man on the daily charts.
“Another significant omission from the current price action may be the fact that the buy immediately emerged from a low intraday of 16,162 levels after the indicator slipped into the bullish range of 16,176 – 16,146 bullish levels, registered on August 4. However, a near-term trend will continue to remain obscure as Nifty50 appears to be in the new trading area of 16,350 to 16,160 levels, “said Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory at Chartviewindia.in
“Therefore, in order to take sustainable action on any indicators a new exit is needed. In addition, in the last 5 days of trading, the ups and downs of the bears are becoming more and more popular and could lead to a market share that will be generally followed,” he said.
Wide markets traded lower today as the Nifty Midcap 100 index fell 0.12 percent and the Smallcap 100 index fell 0.69 percent.
