Since the last eight weeks, even though the broader trend was negative, we saw positive closing on day following weekly expiry. Chances of the same are bright tomorrow as well. Nifty is in the process of reaching its previous low, which is at 10,637, however, as per option data it is turning oversold. On the street the feeler about the market is very low, which could be an excellent opportunity to buy in select large cap companies with a medium term view.

Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Senior Technical Analyst, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas:

The selling pressure got aggravated as the index breached the swing low of 10,796. The Nifty has also reached its daily lower Bollinger Band, which is now in expansion mode. This means that the band can permit the price action to extend on the downside.

Going ahead, the August low of 10,637 can now provide some support to the index; however it is likely to break eventually. Thus traders can continue to hold the short positions & add more once the low breaks. The short term target on the downside is at 10,455 i.e. the 78.6% retracement of the Oct-June rally.

Amit Shah, Technical Research Analyst with Indiabulls Ventures:

Nifty continues on its near term weakness and is threatening to break the large range it has been in for a while. Index has been in a range between 10,650-11,150 and is close to breaking it on the downside. If index manages to decisively breach below the lower end of the range expect further downside pressure for the Nifty. Fresh breakdowns are happening on individual leading stocks which is not a good sign. 10,650 zone is the last hope for the bulls in the near term.
