Liquide Post-Market Summary 11th January 2024

On January 11, the equity benchmarks secured marginal gains in yet another day of volatile trade, as investors adopted a cautious stance ahead of December quarter earnings and US inflation data. Commencing the session on a positive note fuelled by global optimism, the market sustained its upward trajectory in the first half despite profit-booking at higher levels. However, selling pressure in the latter part of the session initially pushed indices into the red, yet they managed to recover and closed with minor gains. The sectoral performance exhibited a mixed trend, with the BSE capital goods index experiencing a 1% decline and the IT index decreasing by 0.5%. On the other hand, the auto and oil & gas indices each registered a 1% gain.

NIFTY:  The index opened 70 points higher at 21,688 and made a high of 21,726 before closing at 21,647. Nifty has formed a spinning top like candlestick pattern on the daily chart. Its immediate resistance level is now placed at 21,725 while immediate support is at 21,600. 

BANK NIFTY: The index opened 178 points higher at 47,538 and closed at 47,438. Bank Nifty has formed a bearish candlestick pattern with upper and lower shadows on the daily chart, which somewhat resembles High Wave kind of candlestick pattern. Its immediate resistance level is now placed at 47,600 while support is at 47,200.
