The reasons due to which the stock market witnessed such a drop is because the U.S. President Donald Trump threatened on Sunday to raise tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods to 25 percent from 10 percent by the end of the week and would also soon impose tariff on imports of remaining Chinese goods. According to Manish Yadav, Head of Research, CapitalAim, this latest move by the President of the United States has surely shocked and dented the sentiments of financial markets across the globe and fueled worries that trade talks between U.S. & China may be derailed. However, China is likely to send a delegation to the United States for trade negotiations. Along with this some profit booking from higher levels also added to negative opening of nifty index on Monday, but it is consolidating around higher levels on daily charts and mostly remained range bound between 11800 to 11550 levels on the daily charts.
The expert further adds that traders are also cautious of general elections and with the exit poll outcomes, choppiness in the market would increase, which can be one more possible reason why the BSE Sensex and Nifty50 observed a collapse.
On Monday, benchmark Nifty opened gap up on a positive note of the closing and made a high of 11657 but then it consolidated downward and went bearish in the later part of the trading session and breached the support levels of 11550 on the daily charts. The expert adds stating that the Indian economy is consumption based, so this factor would provide some support to Benchmark Nifty, whereas, slower to 8 month Factory Growth & decline in PMI to 51.80 in April from 52.60 in March could be a matter of concern for traders and investors.
On daily charts, Benchmark Nifty50 has formed a H&S pattern with neck line around 11550 levels, which also it has breached, so we could witness bearish movements in it till the support levels around 11350.
