TECHNICAL VIEW: Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investmart

Technically, Nifty witnessed closing below 50-DMA with a breakdown of a bearish head and shoulder formation that may lead to further weakness. On the downside, 17150 is an immediate support level while 200-DMA of 17000 is a sacrosanct support level. On the upside, 20-DMA of 17700 is a critical hurdle.   We are heading into expiry weak on a weaker note as the Nifty slipped below the put base of 17500 where 17000 is the next base.

MARKET COMMENT: Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services

A rise in the US 10-year bond yield and a strong dollar index influenced FIIs to flee emerging markets. A fall in liquidity in the banking system, a weak currency and a current premium valuation have set the market outlook bearish for the near term. With aggressive monetary policy action by central banks, the global growth engines are in a slowdown mode, whereas India is currently in a better position with a pickup in credit growth and an uptick in tax collection. The current volatility might persist for a while. Investors are advised to wait and watch until the dust settles.
