Nifty 50 was trading in a rising channel formation since July 28 and registered its lifetime high of 17947.65 on September 24 giving a return of 15% in just three months.

Prices have breached their upward rising trend line but have taken strong support at the 21-day exponential moving average and acted as an anchor point for the index. Prices started with a negative note for the October month expiry and closed below its important support levels of 17600 levels.

China is facing its worst energy crisis in recent times as Beijing tries to crack down on power-guzzling industries in order to stick to emission targets. As a result, 44% of the industrial activity in the world’s second-largest economy is impacted due to the power shortage. It started with factories in 3 provinces facing severe power cuts, but now residential areas in over 20 provinces are facing outages.
