The short-term trend of Nifty continues to be down and the overall bearish chart pattern signal more weakness ahead. The next supports to be watched around 17330 (23.6% fibonacci retracement of June to Aug rising leg) in the next few sessions. On the move below, the next support of 38.2% retracement is placed at 16900 levels. Immediate resistance is at 17600 levels," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

“Nifty slipped back below the falling trend line, indicating a failed breakout. On the lower end, the price has corrected towards the support zone of 17500-17400. Over the near term, a fall below 17400 may trigger a further correction in the market. On the lower end, support is visible at 17200/17000. On the other hand, the Nifty may recover towards 17700 if it doesn't fall below 17400," said Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities.
