Zee Business Stock, Trading Guide: 10 things to know before market opens on 26 December 2022
The selling pressure on Friday was widespread wherein PSU (public sector undertaking) banks, metal and energy stocks were hammered badly.
Zee Business Stock, Trading Guide: The Indian markets plunged sharply lower and lost over two percent, in continuation to the prevailing corrective trend. The Nifty & Sensex gradually inched lower as the session progressed, to settle near the day’s low levels of 17,806 and 59,845, respectively.
The pressure was widespread wherein PSU (public sector undertaking) banks, metal, and energy stocks were hammered badly. The broader indices underperformed the benchmark and lost in the range of 3.5-5 per cent.
Indications are pointing towards the prevailing corrective move to extend further, with a marginal rebound, as per experts. Meanwhile, mixed global cues will keep the volatility high thus we recommend keeping a check on leveraged positions and preferring a hedged approach, they added.

Here is a list of things to watch out for on 26 December 2022
What should investors do?
The last three weeks of the slide have changed the market structure and indications are pointing toward the decline to extend further. On the index front, Nifty has next crucial support at 17,400 levels while 18,200-18,500 would act as hurdles in case of a rebound.
All sectors, barring healthcare, look vulnerable to further slide but the major challenge would be to handle the pressure in the broader markets. Participants should align positions accordingly while keeping a check on leveraged positions.
