The Sensex has given a sell signal on the weekly Fibonacci charts, hence the bias is likely to remain bearish as long as the BSE index sustains below 20,455-odd levels.
The BSE index has also broken its monthly S1 – support – at 20,425, which too can now act as an resistance.
On the downside, the Sensex can now look to test the monthly S2 and S3 – at 20,195 and 19,960 – respectively.
The BSE index will need to sustain above 20,425-odd levels, for any hopes of a bounce back in the remainder of the month.
As per the daily Fibonacci charts, on Wednesday, the Sensex may seek support around 20,160-20,120-20,080, while face resistance around 20,405-20,440-20,480.
The NSE Nifty is on the verge of breaking below the lower-end of the Bollinger Band on the daily charts.
A break below the Bollinger Band, would strengthen the bears, and we may witness accentuated selling pressure in the markets.
However, the NSE index has near support around 5,975-odd levels, which is the 50-DMA (Daily Moving Average).
Break of 5,975, can trigger a fall towards the 200-DMA at Rs 5,860.
Key momentum oscillators like the ADX index and the daily Stochastic Slow are entering oversold region, hence one should not be aggressive sellers at lower levels.
However, one needs to wait for a diversion or signs of positive divergence, before turning buyers at lower levels.
Today, the Nifty may seek support around 5,980-5,970-5,955, while face resistance around 6,055-6,065-6,080.
