The market put up a major disappointing performance for yet another session on September 26 as the benchmark indices plunged more than 1.6 per cent tracking a correction in global peers amid mounting recession fears. The significant selling by FIIs and depreciation in currencies against the US dollar also weighed on sentiment. The BSE Sensex tanked 954 points to 57,145, while the Nifty50 plunged 311 points to 17,016.
“A long bear candle was formed on the daily chart with an opening downside gap. Technically, this market action indicates a sharp down-trended movement in the market. Though Nifty declined sharply by around 1,000 points from the high of 18,000 levels, still there is no confirmation of any buying emerging from the lows,” Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said.
He feels the short-term trend of the Nifty is sharply down, and the weakness is expected to continue for the next 1-2 sessions. The lower support area of 16,800 is expected to offer a base for the market in the short term, the market expert said.
