    US Election
    NEW DELHI: As Nifty ended below the 11,800 level on Monday it formed a long bearish candle on the daily chart.

    Nagaraj Shetti of HDFC Securities said the short term trend of Nifty seems to have reversed from the highs, but the near term trend status of the market remains range bound around 12000-11650 levels.

    "The sharp follow-through weakness is not expected from here in the short term, but there is a possibility of an upside bounce emerging from here or from slightly lower levels. The crucial lower support is placed around 11650-11600 levels," he said.

    Ajit Mishra of Religare Broking said the news of rising COVID cases across Europe and the US is haunting markets across the globe.

    "Besides, participants are hoping for some clarity over the US stimulus package before the US election. Amid all, domestic earnings announcements are further adding to the volatility. We feel it’s prudent to maintain positions on both sides in stocks despite the prevailing consolidation bias in Nifty," he said.

    Vinod Nair of Geojit Financial Services said Indian markets are taking a correction from the recent rally which has factored a lot about an uptrend in earnings growth due to positive Q2 results.

    "Indian indices are expected to remain weak in the near-term and will be driven by the trend of ongoing Q2 results and developments in the US. A big correction is unlikely with 11,500 as a strong support for Nifty50," he said.

    That said here’s a look at what some of the key indicators are suggesting for Tuesday's action:
    US stocks fall on rising virus cases
    US stocks fell sharply on Monday as surging coronavirus cases and a stalemate in Washington over the next fiscal aid bill darkened the economic outlook in the run up to the Nov. 3 presidential election. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 651.31 points, or 2.30%, to 27,684.12, the S&P 500 index lost 65.08 points, or 1.90%, to 3,399.47 and the Nasdaq Composite index lost 173.94 points, or 1.53%, to 11,375.16.

    Coronavirus restrictions, SAP slump hit European shares
    European stocks fell on Monday as Italy and Spain imposed fresh restrictions to control a resurgence in coronavirus cases, while shares in German heavyweight SAP slumped after it cut its 2020 outlook. The pan-European STOXX 600 index declined 0.5% and the euro zone blue-chip index tumbled 1.4%, with risk appetite globally sapped by worries over slow progress on a new U.S. stimulus bill and looming presidential election.

    Tech View: Nifty forms long bearish candle
    After forming indecisive candles in the last couple of sessions, Nifty50 at last showed signs of weakness on Monday. The index formed a long bearish candle on the daily chart, breached its crucial resistance in the 11,800-11,780 range, showed signs of weakness on the momentum indicators and now stares at the prospect of further downside. Analysts said the odds are good that the index may test the 11,650-600 range in the coming days.

    F&O: VIX sees a spike
    India VIX moved up 4.6 per cent from 21.82 to 22.83 levels. Volatility needs to cool down below 20 level for the market to stabilise and keep a check on any spike on account of the US election. Options data suggested a wider trading range between 11,500 and 12,000 levels.
