    NEW DELHI: As Nifty ended with gains for the fifth session in a row on Tuesday, it formed a Pin Bar or Hanging Man candle pattern on the daily chart.

    Chandan Taparia of Motilal Oswal Financial Services said the major market trend remains positive, as declines are being bought into on many of the heavyweight counters.

    "Now, the index has to hold above 10,650 level to extend its move towards 11,000 level, while on the downside, supports shifted higher to 10,550 and 10,450 levels," he said.

    Deepak Jasani of HDFC Securities said technically, as Nifty move further up, it could rise towards 10,887 level, which corresponds to the 200-day SMA. Also, weakness could emerge if the support of 10,690 is broken.

    Sumeet Bagadia of Choice broking said Nifty has been trading above its 50-day moving average with an upward rising channel formation, which suggests further upside.

    “Based on the above technical structure, we expect Nifty resistance at 10,850-10,900, while downside support should come in at 10,570,” he said.

    That said, here’s a look at what some of the key indicators are suggesting for Wednesday’s market action:

    US shares dip after five-day run
    Wall Street's major indexes slipped on Tuesday following the benchmark S&P 500's longest streak of gains this year as investors worried about the tens of thousands of new coronavirus cases nationwide. At 7:30 pm (IST), the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 208.12 points, or 0.79 per cent, at 26,078.91, the S&P 500 was down 11.52 points, or 0.36 per cent, at 3,168.20, and the Nasdaq Composite was down 6.22 points, or 0.06 per cent, at 10,427.43.

    European shares ease from 1-month highs
    European shares fell on Tuesday as surging US coronavirus cases and forecasts for a deeper-than-feared recession in the euro zone dimmed optimism around a post-pandemic rebound. The pan-European STOXX 600 index slipped 1 per cent, falling back from a near one-month high. Banks, which had surged 4 per cent in the previous session tracking a global rally after China moved to prop up its market, fell 1.3 per cent. Travel and leisure, real estate, and technology shares dropped more than 1.5 per cent each.

    Tech View: Nifty in consolidation mode
    Nifty on Tuesday missed the 10,800 mark by a whisker. It was another day of range-bound trade and for yet another day, the index formed an indecisive candle on the daily chart, suggesting that it was in a consolidation mode.
