The market started the week on a negative note and dropped sharply to close the lower percentage on July 19, attracted by banks and finance, automotive, metals, and stock options IT.
BSE Sensex scored 586.66 points or 1.10 percent to 52,553.40, while Nifty50 dropped 171 points or 1.07 percent to 15,752.40 and formed a Doji type pattern on daily charts.
“A Doji (not old-fashioned) candle pattern was created with a gap in the daily chart, indicating that another round of adjustment is coming from higher altitudes,” said Nagaraj Shetti, Research Technology Specialist, HDFC Securities
He said, “Monday’s weakness has proven to be an attempt at false positives at 15,900 levels. This is a bad sign in the market, as high false positive cracks reach the bottom of the consolidation / wide movement or move below that. Therefore, one would expect the Nifty to decline down to 15,635 levels or down in a short period of time. “
But, “there is a good chance that Nifty will go under this grant at some point. Any increase from here could get sales pressure at about 15,825 levels,” he added.
Wide markets are over mixed. The Nifty Midcap 100 index fell 0.81 percent and the Nifty Smallcap 100 index decreased by 0.03 percent.
