Liquide Post-Market Summary 17th August 2023

The Nifty ended the day below 19,400, driven by widespread selling across various sectors. The decline in today’s market was attributed to concerns about inflation and the influence of weak global indicators following the release of the US Federal Reserve meeting minutes. The suggestion of potential additional rate hikes in those minutes unnerved investors, contributing to their apprehension.

NIFTY: The index opened flat at 19,450 and made a high of 19,461 before closing at 19,365. Nifty has formed a bearish candlestick on the daily chart. Its immediate resistance level is now placed at 19,500 while immediate support is at 19,250.

BANK NIFTY:  The index opened 49 points lower at 43,897 and closed at 43,891. Bank Nifty has formed a Doji candlestick on the daily chart, as the closing was near the opening levels, indicating that momentum is missing on both sides. Its immediate resistance level is now placed at 44,000 while support is at 43,700.
