We shared an article during the late evening on Tuesday as an update to “Weekly WrapUp – Bank Nifty recovered sharply after 2 weeks bear fall“, where we expected the market to move with the negative bias and consolidate in the big range 19600 to 18750 and to prepare for the Union Budget (due on Feb 28th, 2015).
Bank Nifty after topping out on Monday at 19610 falls for more than 350 points from the day’s high and moved choppy on Wednesday to close the day 0.6% in green. Sellers turned to be active the next day and bank nifty kept on drifting downwards after topping for the day at 19450 and falling 500 points led the sellers believe the expectancy for the down momentum to continue. We see a sudden drift in the sentiment of the market from sellers to buyers where market recovered more than 400 points “Just “within the last hour of the trade. This sudden fast rise forced the late short entrants to struggle with their trades and especially amateurs (those trading without stop loss) to book huge losses in jiffy.
The choppiness continued on the next day where market moved more than 350 points down early in the morning then rises more than 450 points and again fall more than 300 points in the later trading day.
