Mumbai: On Thursday, the last day of February F& O expiry, the benchmark indices registered sharp selloff. The BSE Sensex was down by 2,700points. Weak global cues, geopolitical tension and rising crude oil prices were the major factors behind sharp selloff. On Thursday, the nifty opened well below 200-day SMA and post gap down opening it intensified the weak momentum throughout the day.

Among Sectors, all the major sectoral indices corrected sharply but PSU Banks and Reality lost the most, both the indices down over 6 percent. Technically, after a long time, Nifty closed below 200-day SMA and it has formed a long bearish candle on daily charts which suggest further weakness from current levels.

Considering the uncertainties hovering around, the index may trade lower between the highs of 54,400 and 56,200. The market is in corrective mode and it would complete its corrective pattern between 54,400 and 53,800.

"For the traders, 55,000 and 55,250 would act as intraday resistance for BSE Sensex, while 54,100-53,800 could be the immediate support zone for the index," says Shrikant Chauhan, head (equity research-retail), Kotak Securities.

As traders assess the implications of the Russia-Ukraine situation, bears continued to outnumber bulls on Dalal Street, with frontline indexes falling below important.

Russia has initiated a military operation against Ukraine's military infrastructure, which might lead to a larger-scale invasion of Ukraine, with the potential of the United States and Europe becoming militarily involved as well, say analysts.

After the price of oil crossed the $100 per barrel level, fueling inflation fears in oil-importing countries like India, sentiments have remained shattered. Traders in India dismissed claims that Moody's Investors service has boosted India's growth prediction to 9.5 per cent for the calendar year 2022 and 8.4 per cent for the fiscal year starting April 1, citing high oil prices and supply disruptions as a drag on growth.
