What should traders do? Here’s what analysts said:
Jatin Gedia, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas
On the daily charts, we can observe that the Nifty has breached the previous swing low of 19333 it touched in the first week of October and has closed below that indicating a breakdown. Weekly, daily, and hourly momentum indicators have a negative crossover which is a sell signal. Thus, both price and momentum indicators suggest a further decline. On the downside, Nifty is likely to drift towards 19,000 from a short-term perspective. On the way up 19,500 – 19,530 shall act as an immediate hurdle zone as per the principle of role reversal.Shrikant Chouhan, Kotak Securities
For day traders, 19,400 would be the key resistance level, below which the index could slip till 19,200-19,175. On the other hand, above 19,400 we could see a quick technical bounce back till 19,450-19,500.
Kunal Shah, Senior Technical & Derivative analyst at LKP Securities
The bears have maintained a strong grip on the index, resulting in significant selling pressure. This pressure led to a breakdown of the key support level at 19,500. With the support at 19,500 breached, the next significant support level was at 19,200. If the index fails to sustain above this level, it may experience further declines toward the 19,000-18,800 range.The overall sentiment for the index remains bearish. As long as the index stays below the 19,600 mark, the view remains bearish, and any upward movements are viewed as selling opportunities.
