“The Nifty witnessed sustained selling pressure for yet another session. An intraday bounce faced resistance near the key hourly moving averages and the 20 DMA,” Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Head of Technical Research, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas said.

Ratnaparkhi said, “From there the index nosedived towards the end of the session. As a result, Nifty has entered the near-term support zone of 17900-17800. The hourly chart shows that the index has reached lower end of the rising channel with a minor breach on the downside.”

“Going ahead, the junction of 40 DEMA and the swing low on the daily chart, which is near 17800 will be the key support to watch out for. There is scope for a bounce-back as long as the level of 17800 holds on a closing basis. A near-term hurdle is paced at 18000-18050 at the higher side, he added.
