Stock market today: On account of the sharp sell-off in PSU stocks, the Indian stock market gave up early morning gains and ended lower on Monday. The Nifty 50 index lost 166 points and closed at the 21,616 level, the BSE Sensex nosedived 523 points and finished at the 71,072 mark while the Bank Nifty index crashed 752 points and ended at the 44,882 level. In the broad market, the small-cap index crashed 3.16 percent whereas the mid-cap index tanked 2.62 percent.

"Domestic equities opened positive but soon witnessed selling pressure amid muted global cues. While Nifty closed with a loss of 166 points (-0.8%) at 21616, the broader market plunged sharply with the Nifty mid-cap 100 down 2.5% and the Nifty small-cap 100 down 4%. The volatility index - India VIX jumped 4% to 16 levels. Barring IT & Pharma, all sectors ended in red. PSUs saw a heavy profit booking after witnessing a sharp rally over the last few months and weak Q3 results posted by many. There was also caution ahead of domestic CPI and IIP data that is due for release later on Monday," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research at Motilal Oswal.

Day trading guide for stock market today

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 index, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "A long bear candle was formed on the daily chart that placed it at the edge of the downside breakout of the crucial support of up trend line at 21,600 levels. The weakness in the benchmark Nifty was accompanied by a deep cut in the broader market indices like midcap and small-cap segments on Monday. This is not a good sign. The short-term trend of Nifty is negative. The benchmark and broader market indices are now placed to show further weakness in the near term. The next lower support for the Nifty is at 21,200 to 21,150 levels for this week. Immediate resistance for Nifty today is placed at 21,800 levels."

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Om Mehra, Technical Analyst at SAMCO Securities said, "In the realm of Bank Nifty, the session concluded at 44,882.25, witnessing a loss of 752 points or 1.65 percent. PSU banks bore the brunt, experiencing a significant 4.66% decline. None of the Nifty Bank constituent closed in the green signifying intense selling across the sector. The Bank Nifty displayed a large red candle engulfing the entire previous day's body. The index slipped below the crucial 200 DMA after a considerable period. The combined weakness in PSU and private banking stocks could drag the index to levels 44,000-43,800, with a formidable resistance of around 45,600. Caution is advised, considering the possibility of a fake minor pullback leading to a further downturn."
