TODAY’S MARKET SNAPSHOT:
Nifty closed mildly negative for the week ended August 20 and formed a shooting star candlestick pattern which is a bearish sign. Nifty outperformed all the major indices globally in the week gone by but shooting star pattern on weekly charts hints at a mild retracement towards the short term averages. There could be a dip towards 16150. Traders are advised to remain short on nifty. If Nifty breaks 16150 on closing basis, then it is likely to open doors for 15800 levels. Be stock specific. As it is an expiry week, hence volatility will be high on both sides.
Bank nifty is looking very negative from these levels. One should book profits at these levels. If bank nifty breaks 34800 on closing basis, then it is most likely to hit 34200 in next few sessions. Avoid bank nifty as heavy correction is likely to continue in the ensuing week.
The advance decline ration stood in the ratio of 1:7
