Nifty barely touched the 7600 high yesterday and started slipping lower soon after. The story continued today and ended with Nifty loosing a 115 points , closing 1.53% lower, at 7440.
As per Nifty’s intraday 15-mins chart , we can see that a support is present at 7420, however considering the strong downside momentum sustenance at this level is highly doubted right now.
The day’s weakness stemmed from the steel sector with Tata Steel, Vedanta, Steel Authority of India being the biggest losers. Even the Pharma sector lost some 4-5% with Glenmark pharma and Aurbindo pharma being the worst hit.
The internation scenario wasn’t much different from Nifty. The European indices are currently trading 1.6-1.8% lower. The Chinese markets were not the reason behind the suffering we saw today however the effect of today’s weakness is expected to show up tomorrow in the Chinese indices.
