“The long bear candle of the last two sessions signals a faster downside retracement of the last 5-6 sessions of upmove. This is a negative indication and signal that bears are in a driver’s seat,” he said.
For the day, the index closed at 17,490.70, down 267.75 points or 1.51 per cent.
A fall below 17,400 may trigger a further correction in Nifty50, said Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at
“On the lower end, support is visible at 17,200-17,000. On the other hand, the Nifty50 may recover towards 17,700 if it doesn’t fall below 17,400,” De said.
Gaurav Ratnaparkhi of Sharekhan said Nifty50 formed a Shooting Star candlestick pattern on the weekly chart for the last week. Also, on the daily chart, the index had seen few bearish developments on August 19. “Thus, follow-through action was witnessed today. In the week gone by, the index had crossed a falling trendline; however, it couldn’t sustain in the higher territory and has tumbled below the trendline today. This shows that the bears are having the upper hand currently. The short-term momentum indicators are also in favour of the bears,” Ratnaparkhi said.
This analyst sees a decline in Nifty50 towards 17,300 and 17,000 on the downside. On the other hand, 17,700-17,750 will act as a near-term hurdle zone, he said.

“It has to hold above 38,250 for an upmove towards 38,750 and 38,888 zones whereas supports are placed at 38,000 and 37,750 zones,” he said.
