Was the fix anticipated?

Due to inflated valuations in most mid- and small-cap equities without fundamental or technical support, a market correction was needed. Tradejini COO Trivesh D expects the correction to last a few more sessions before account-Budget 2024.

Data suggests that the market is negative before the budget, and February has averaged 1.4 percent decline over the last decade. This tendency should continue.

Technical View

The Nifty has support at 21,100 and resistance at 21,400. Vaishali Parekh, vice-president of technical research at Prabhudas Lilladher, said a drop below 21,000 will weaken the trend and investors should expect additional decline.

January derivatives contract expiration and earnings season will keep volatility high.

After a shaky start, the Nifty was volatile all day. The index showed hints of reversal on the hourly chart. However, it closed below 21500 resistance. A decisive move above 21500 might boost the index. Downside support is 21400-21350. A breach above 21500 might push the index above 21700.

Markets recovered from Tuesday’s drop and rose about 1% amid turbulence. Initial sentiment was negative, but select heavyweights rebounded to stop the loss and assist the Nifty close in the green. While banking and realty ended weak, metal, energy, and IT performed strongly. The broader indices recovered and gained nearly 1.5 percent each.

Consolidation is possible as the banking index tested its 200 EMA on Wednesday. However, other crucial sectors would struggle to boost Nifty. We recommend stock-specific trading and maintaining positions on both sides.

For Nifty, the immediate resistance is around 22,050 and support at 21,500 and 21,400, Nada added.For Bank Nifty 48,000 is a key obstacle, underlined by strong Call writing. A decisive breakout above the may unleash a rapid short-covering surge. Immediate support is at 47,200-47000, a break of which will probably prompt severe selling pressure, perhaps leading to a fall, he added.
