Following Monday’s recovery from lower levels, Nifty opened on a positive note, however, its inability to sustain above 18,100 dragged the index lower till 17,983. Nifty swung in a 130-point high/low range which is its lowest daily range since October 18 (except Diwali Muhrat session’s range). The appearance of a narrow range bar indicates indecisiveness, hence, sustenance below 18,100 could attract consolidation with an immediate floor seen near 17,850.
Nifty’s breadth turned flat with half of its components settling in negative territory. Sectoral trend, meanwhile, remained mixed.
Bank Nifty formed the inside bar chart pattern i.e. it traded within the prior session’s range. Under-performance of the Bank Nifty index is likely to continue as long as it trades beneath the levels of 40,000. Within the banking space, the PSU Bank index continues its recent outperformance.
