The benchmark indices registered a volatile trading session, after a roller coaster momentum the Nifty 50 ended 62 points lower while BSE Sensex fell 105 points. Among sectors, the metal index lost the most, shedding over 5 per cent. Whereas some buying was seen in selective banking and FMCG stocks. Technically, after a muted opening the market witnessed intraday recovery but one more time it took the resistance near 16400/55000 and corrected sharply. In addition, on intraday charts, the index is still holding lower top formation, which is broadly negative for the market.
For the traders, 16200/54200 would be the key level to watch out, strong possibility of one more quick intraday correction is not ruled out, if the index succeeds to trade below 16200/54200. Below this level, the Nifty/Sensex could touch the level of 16100-16050/54000-53700. On the flip side, fresh pullback rally is possible only after 16300/54500 intraday breakouts. Above the same, the index would retest the level of 16400-16450/55000-55200.

The stock has underperformed after hitting the double top formation and it has witnessed a downtrend. However, in recent past sessions, there is a pause in downward momentum. As a result, the counter is into an accumulation phase near its important demand zone. Therefore, the formation indicates the resumption of a bullish uptrend in the coming horizon.
BUY, CMP: Rs 771.3, TARGET: Rs 810, SL: Rs 755
The stock had witnessed gradual price decline post its upward movement. However, reversal is seen from its important support zone on the daily charts. The formation indicates the stock is very likely to resume its new leg of the uptrend from the current levels.
BUY, CMP: Rs 1,341.05, TARGET: Rs 1,410, SL: Rs 1,310

BUY, CMP: Rs 155.45, TARGET: Rs 164, SL: Rs 151
The counter has shown an incredible rally in the recent past and despite weak market conditions, the stock is holding firm on higher levels. The structure is representing a bullish continuation chart pattern, which hints at an uptrend to persist in the near term.
