Sensex Today Live : Small-caps sneeze, markets catch a cold

Sensex Today Live : Concerns over a potential asset bubble in small-cap stocks swept across the market on Wednesday, pulling down both the benchmark indices and the wider markets. This occurred just a day ahead of the expiration of the February series of derivatives.

The sell-off primarily impacted small-cap and midcap stocks, following reports that a worried market regulator had requested stress tests for mutual funds’ small-cap schemes. Additionally, a prominent fund house halted incremental flows into small-cap schemes.

Both the Nifty and Sensex experienced a drop of slightly over 1 percent, breaking the psychological thresholds of 22,000 and 73,000 to reach 21951.15 and 72304.88 respectively. This was due to foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) and retail investors selling off a provisional 1879.23 crore and 200 crore respectively. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : What to expect from Indian stock market in trade on February 29

Sensex Today Live : Investors in the Indian stock market are likely to tread carefully on Thursday, the day of the monthly derivatives expiry, in light of the weak cues from the global market and the significant correction observed in the benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty 50 during the last session.

The Gift Nifty trends suggest a slightly positive opening for the Indian benchmark index. The Gift Nifty was seen trading around the 21,960 mark, a rise of over 30 points from the previous close of Nifty Futures.

On Wednesday, the domestic benchmark indices concluded with a decline of more than a percent, with the Nifty 50 dropping below the 22,000 mark just before the monthly expiry.

Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, stated, “From a technical perspective, this pattern indicates a trend reversal towards the downside, and one might anticipate further short-term weakness. The positive chart pattern of higher tops and bottoms remains intact, and the current weakness could align with the new higher bottom of the pattern. The next critical lower levels to monitor are around 21,800 and 21,700 (ascending trend line and 10-week EMA).” (Read the full story here.)
