The benchmark indices corrected sharply, as the Nifty 50 shed over 195 points whereas the BSE Sensex was down by 554 points. Among sectors, all the major sectoral indices registered technical selloff but reality lost the most, shedding over 2.5 per cent. Technically, on daily charts the Nifty/ Sensex has formed a long bearish candle which suggests further weakness from current levels. In addition, on intraday charts, both have formed lower top formation which also indicate continuation of weakness in the near future. 

However, after a sharp intraday correction, currently the index is trading near an important support level. We are of the view that, the intraday formation is still in to the weak side and now 18225-18250/61000-61200 would act as an important hurdle for the day traders, below the same the correction wave will continue up to 18050-18020/60500-60400. Contra traders can take long bets near 18020/60400 with strict 17980/60225 support stop loss. The market is volatile and will remain volatile in the near future hence level based trading would be the ideal strategy for the day traders.
