Stocks in focus: The India market closed in the red for the fourth session on Thursday tracking weakness in the gobal markets. The broader Nifty50 slipped below 16,000 and the Sesex dropped by nearly 100 points as the benchmark indices took a 0.18% cut each.
“The Nifty had a decent pullback from around 15200 to 16200 in the last few weeks. Multiple technical parameters posed as stiff barriers near 16200. Consequently, the index had a brief distribution near 16000-16200 recently and has slipped into a short-term correction mode once again,” said Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Head of Technical Research, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas.
The index is now approaching the lower end of a rising channel on the hourly chart & the 20 DMA, which are near 15800-15850, said Gaurav.
“Overall structure shows that the index has a potential to break this near term support zone and head lower towards 15500. On the other hand, 16000-16050 is expected to act as a near term hurdle & any bounce towards that area can be taken as a fresh selling opportunity,” he said.
Meanwhile, certain stocks came in focus on Thursday. These stocks were Ceat, Birlasoft and Edelweiss Financial Services. Ceat closed with almost five per cent gains, Birlasoft dropped a little over eight per cent and Edelweiss Financial Services ended higher by four per cent on Thursday

3. Edelweiss Financial Services
