Top 15 things to know before the opening bell

Markets remained under pressure for the sixth consecutive session, with benchmark indices falling by nearly a third on February 24, taking overall weekly losses to over 2.5 per cent for the first time since June 2022. All sectors, except Pharma and Oil & Gas, closed in the red.

The BSE Sensex fell 142 points to 59,464, while the Nifty 50 fell 45 points to 17,466, its lowest level since October 17 last year.

Experts said the next important support to watch could be the Budget day low of 17,353, which coincides with the 200-day SMA (Simple Moving Average), while 17,600 acts as near-term resistance for the Nifty 50. expected to work.

Broader markets also traded in line with the benchmarks as the Nifty Midcap 100 and Smallcap 100 indices declined 0.2 per cent each on a weak breadth. About three scrips declined for every two scrips rising on the NSE.

“Technically, we are in a short-term downtrend, but we are very close to the crucial support level of the 200-day moving average, which also happens to be the budget day low. Hence the bulls attempt to defend Nifty’s 200- day moving average,” said Santosh Meena, head of research at Swastika Investmart.

He feels that if Nifty is able to maintain its 200-DMA, the index will make a double bottom, which could lead to a market pullback.

On the upside, the 20-DMA near 17,770 will continue to act as an important hurdle; Above this, we can expect a short-covering move towards 18,000-18,100 range. However, there will be more selling pressure if Nifty is unable to sustain its 200-DMA, and 17130 will be the next support level, Santosh said.
