- Stock market analysts expect the market to consolidate for the next few days
Benchmark BSE Sensex fell for the second straight session on Monday in a volatile trade due to profit taking in oil, IT and auto stocks ahead of the RBI policy announcement. The BSE Sensex dipped 33.9 points to settle at 62,834.6. The Nifty eked out marginal gains and ended at 18,701.
“Going ahead the momentum in the mid and small cap companies is likely to continue. Metals, Banking and Realty sectors would continue seeing traction. Banking stocks will be in lime light ahead of RBI policy outcome. We expect market to consolidate for next few days given the RBI policy on Wednesday and Gujarat election outcome on Thursday,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal.
Day trading guide for stock market today –
“Nifty remained sideward during the session as the benchmark index hovered within 140 points range. On the daily chart, a small-bodied candle with a long lower shadow is formed. The lackluster sentiment is likely to continue over the short term. On the lower end, 17,550-18,500 is going to act as a very crucial support; while a rising price finds resistance at 18,800,” said Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities.
On Nifty Bank, Kunal Shah, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities said “The index remains in buy mode as long as it holds the support of 42,800 on the downside. The higher-end resistance is visible at 43,500 where a significant amount of call writing has been observed. The index is likely to consolidate in a broad range between 42,500-43,500 and a break on either side will lead to trending moves.”
