Pre-market Setup for Thursday: Things to know before opening bell

On October 4, 2023, the Indian stock market continued its downward trend for the second consecutive session. The Nifty50 index broke below its upward-sloping support trendline and remained below the 50-day and 20-day Exponential Moving Averages (EMA). This suggests the possibility of short-term weakness. If the Nifty stays below 19,500, it could fall further to 19,200, the low of August. However, the formation of a Doji-type candlestick pattern on the daily charts during the downtrend may increase the chances of a bounce-back. Reclaiming the 19,500 level could potentially lift the index to levels around 19,600-19,700 in the coming sessions.

The BSE Sensex dropped 286 points to 65,226, while the Nifty50 declined by 93 points to 19,436. Technically, the Nifty50 formed a small candle on the daily chart with almost identical open and close, along with a long lower shadow. This pattern indicates the formation of a Doji or Hammer-type candle, which can signal a potential comeback of bulls from lower levels after confirmation. A sustainable close above 19,500 is expected to confirm a short-term upside bounce for the market.

However, it's important to note that the short-term trend of the Nifty remains negative. A decisive close above 19,500 levels could lead to an upside bounce towards 19,650 in the near term. Conversely, the inability to sustain the upside bounce or a decline below 19,330 could trigger fresh weakness in the market.

The Nifty Midcap 100 and Smallcap 100 indices experienced more significant corrections compared to the benchmark indices, falling 1.4 percent and 1.25 percent, respectively, reflecting weak market breadth.
