“After the formation of bullish chart patterns like higher tops and bottoms in the last two months, Nifty has started to form a bearish pattern like lower tops and bottoms. The new lower top was formed on Tuesday at 21,750 levels and one may expect more weakness from here to form a new lower bottom of the sequence," said Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

He believes the short-term trend of Nifty is down and one may expect more weakness in the short term.

Here’s what to expect from Nifty 50 and Bank Nifty today:

Nifty 50 Prediction

Nifty 50 consolidated for a few days that led to a decline, with the index slipping below the lower end of the recent consolidation range and ending 333 points lower on Tuesday.

“The bearish sentiment appears to be strengthening as the Nifty closed at its lowest points on multiple days. Weakness may persist in the short term, with support at 21,200; below this level, the index could potentially decline towards 21,000 and beyond," said Rupak De, Senior Technical  Analyst, LKP Securities.

Looking ahead, he believes the market may continue to be a “sell on rise" scenario as long as it remains below 21,500.

Bank Nifty Prediction

The Bank Nifty experienced a dominant bearish trend, with sustained selling pressure that dragged the index 1,043 points, or 2.26%, lower to close at 45,015.

“The current sentiment suggests a “sell on rise" strategy, emphasizing the prevailing bearish outlook. Immediate resistance is identified at 45,500 levels, and any upward movement towards this level is viewed as an opportune moment to consider selling positions," said Kunal Shah, Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst at LKP Securities.

On the downside, he believes crucial support is established around the 45,000-44,800 zone. A breach below this support range may intensify the selling pressure, potentially leading to a decline towards the 44,000 mark, he added.
