The Nifty lost momentum after hitting a record high of 10,114.85 on the F&O expiry day on Thursday and closed flat with a slight negative bias, making a bearish candle which also resembles a pattern similar to ‘Shooting Star’ on the daily candlestick charts.
A bearish candle is formed when the index closes below the opening level. The Nifty index closed flat at 10,020.55 which was lower than the opening level of 10,063.25.
A bearish candle after a strong bullish candle is not a welcome sign for the bulls. But as long as 9,965-10,000 on the index holds, bulls have nothing to worry, suggest experts.
