The index has bridged the bullish hole current within the zone of 18,128 and 18,081, with an intraday low of 18,085 degree.
“Selling may get accentuated if the Nifty50 consistently trades below 18,080 levels. In such a situation, it can head to lower levels with initial targets present around the 50-day exponential moving average, whose value is placed at the 17,600 level. Contrary to this, if the bulls manage to defend 18,080 on a closing basis sideways, consolidation can be expected,” mentioned Mazhar Mohammad of Chartviewindia.in.
Chandan Taparia of Motilal Oswal Securities mentioned that the index had damaged a rising support development line on a every day scale. It wants to carry above 18,081 for an upmove in direction of the 18,250 and 18,350 ranges, Taparia mentioned, including that support for the index exists at 18,000 and 17,900 ranges.
For the day, the index closed at 18,113.05, down 195.05 factors or 1.07 per cent.
