On January 8, the domestic equity benchmarks fell ~1% each amid weak global cues. The nervousness preceding the Q3 earnings season and profit-booking contributed to this downturn. The major drags on the market included banks, financial services, and FMCG. The Nifty concluded the day at 21,513, down 197.80 points or 0.91%. Except for Nifty Media and Nifty Realty, which saw marginal gains of about 0.1% each, all other sectoral indices ended with losses. Nifty FMCG emerged as the most significant loser, registering a decline of 1.72%. Following closely, Nifty Bank witnessed a 1.47% fall, while Nifty Financial Services dropped by 1.03%.
NIFTY: The index opened 37 points higher at 21,747 and made a high of 21,764 before closing at 21,513. Nifty has formed a big bearish candle on the daily chart. Its immediate resistance level is now placed at 21,600 while immediate support is at 21,475.
BANK NIFTY: The index opened 63 points lower at 48,096 and closed at 47,450. Bank Nifty has formed a bearish marubozu candle with significant volumes on the daily chart. Its immediate resistance level is now placed at 47,600 while support is at 47,400.
