15 things to know before opening the bell


The market is still not out of the woods, although it rallied on May 10 after a steady recovery since hitting an all-time high the previous week. As long as Nifty holds 21,900, the low of the May 9 long bearish candle and which coincides with the rising support trendline, consolidation is expected to continue and the index may face resistance at 22,200-22,300 levels. But a break of 21,900 could pull it down to April month's low of 21,775, experts say.

On May 10, BSE Sensex rose 260 points to 72,665, while Nifty 50 rose 98 points to 22,055 and formed small bullish candlestick patterns with minor upper and lower shadows on the daily charts.

Technically this pattern indicates a temporary pause in the market after a sharp decline. Nagaraj Shetty, Senior Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, said Nifty is at important trendline support around 21,900 and there is still no sign of any higher reversal pattern forming at lower levels.

On the weekly chart Nifty formed a long bearish candle with a slight lower shadow. Following the formation of a Long Legged Doji at new highs last week, Nifty's formation of a long bear candle during the last week indicates a negative bias.

Shetty feels that being at key trendline support, there is a possibility of a minor bounce in the short term, but the market may eventually break the current support of 21,900-21,850 levels and fall to 22,700-22,600 in the near term. , “Immediate resistance lies at 22,300 levels.”

Jigar S Patel, Senior Manager – Equity Research, Anand Rathi, also believes that the index is close to the lower boundary of an upper channel, and its violation could be a sign of deeper market concerns. “Looking ahead, a fall below 21,900, the previous low of 21,777, could create panic in the market,” he said.

Meanwhile, increased volatility also seems to keep the bears in action against the bulls. India VIX, the fear gauge, surged 81 per cent in the last 12 consecutive sessions to hit 18.47, the highest closing level since October 13, 2022.
