Osho Krishan of
sees 16,400 to act as an intermediate resistance zone, followed by the wall of the unfilled gap of 16,480-16,650 odd zone.
“The 16,000 mark is expected to act as the sheet anchor, while any breach below could again dampen the market sentiment. The momentum is likely only when the index comes out from the ongoing slender range bound movement,” he said.
“Traders will now need to watch if the Nifty50 can hold above the immediate support of 16,078. Else, we could see a further correction,” Subash Gangadharan of Securities said.
For the day, the index traded at 16,125.15, down 89.55 points or 0.55 per cent.
Considering two exceptionally strong days in the last six sessions, Nifty50 can remain inside a trading range of 16,400 and 15,900 for some time, said Mazhar Mohammad of Chartviewindia.in.
“For time being, it looks prudent for the market participants to remain neutral on Nifty50 bets till a decisive move arises in either of the directions,” Mohammad said.
Shrikant Chouhan of Kotak Securities believes that the index may have a negative bias as long as the index is trading below 16250. “Below the same, it could retest the level of 16,000-15,050. On the flip side, post 16,250 breakout, the index could move up to 16,325-16,375,” he said. Nifty Bank Chandan
of Securities said the index remained under pressure and was relatively resilient in comparison to the broader market.
