Daily Stock Market Report: August 18

Nifty opened today with a gap down of around 63.50 points (-0.33%) and moved sideways throughout the day before closing almost at its opening level with an intraday move of 55.10 pts, closing with -0.28%

  • Today's price movement forms a Doji pattern on the daily chart, highlighting market indecisiveness, and its occurrence near support levels suggests the absence of significant selling pressure.
  • Nevertheless, the Doji pattern presents a glimmer of hope for market participants. Yet, a decisive breakthrough above the falling trendline is essential to trigger a substantial upward momentum.
  • Conversely, a breach of this support level (19300 - 19250) might lead to a short-term correction.
