Bizz Buzz Pre-market Wednesday: Things to know before the opening bell

Volatility grips Nifty, Sensex following Budget 2024: What experts have to say

The market appears to be facing challenges in maintaining the 21,500 mark, identified as the immediate support level. Bears have attempted to break this support, but bulls have strongly resisted, resulting in the Nifty 50 closing above this level. As long as the index holds this support, experts suggest a continuation of range-bound trade with resistance at 21,750-21,850 levels. However, a break below 21,500 could trigger significant bearish action, indicating a potential major correction.

On January 9, the benchmark indices had a strong opening, but gains were erased in the last hour of trade. The BSE Sensex was up 31 points at 71,386, while the Nifty 50 gained 32 points at 21,545. The daily charts showed a bearish candlestick pattern as the closing was lower than opening levels.

According to Nagaraj Shetti, senior technical research analyst at HDFC Securities, the technical indicators suggest a negative indication and the possibility of sharp weakness around the overhead hurdles at 21,750 levels. The Nifty 50 has started visiting the immediate supports of the 10-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) frequently, and a decisive break below the support at 21,500 could lead to further weakness.

Kunal Shah, senior technical & derivative analyst at LKP Securities, highlights two possibilities for a significant directional movement for Nifty. A closing above 21,750 could reclaim bullish momentum, while a close below 21,500 might prompt additional selling pressure, potentially pulling the Nifty index toward the 21,200 mark.
