Major reasons for today’s fall - monthly expiry, upcoming union budget, and negative reports on Adani group.
Adani companies have taken huge loans from banks and if the company falls in the future, it will affect those banks also. This can be considered as a small trigger because Adani group companies have faced similar situations earlier also.
Also, we observed a trend in the market during the Union budget season of the previous years.
The market usually forms Doji and red candles during the week before the budget and makes a good rally just after the budget announcement. The fall in the last week of January acts as a buying opportunity for many market participants.
Nifty lost 18,000, but it is still trading well above the support zone around 17,780.
