Ease in wholesale prices for December could not soothe investors on Monday as markets closed the session on a weak ground pulled down by select heavyweights.  

After opening with firm gains, the BSE Sensex shed 494 points from the day's high. The index ended 168 points lower at 60,093 dragged by HDFC twins, Reliance, Axis Bank, ICICI bank, L&T, HUL, Airtel and M&M, down 1-2 per cent.

On the flip side, IT majors Tech M, HCL Tech, Infosys, Wipro and TCS were the top index winners, which gained up to 3 per cent. 

The NSE Nifty closed 62 points lower at 17,895. Adani Enterprises, Hindalco and JSW Steel were the additional losers on the index.

In the broader market, the BSE Midcap and Smallcap indices also ended 0.3 per cent and 0.1 per cent lower, respectively. 

Within sectors, IT and PSB indices on the Nifty defied the market and closed over 1 per cent higher. Metal and financial pockets were the worst hit.

TECHNICAL VIEW: Gaurav Ratnaparkhi, Head of Technical Research, Sharekhan by BNP Paribas

The Nifty has been witnessing short term consolidation for the last few weeks. In terms of the price patterns, it has formed a triangle on the daily chart. Towards the end of the last week, the Nifty had formed a base near the lower end of the pattern. Consequently, the index took a leap on the upside & opened gap up on January 16. However, the index stumbled near the upper end of the pattern & stayed back into the pattern. Till the time the index trades above 17800 on a closing basis, the pattern is eventually expected to break out on the upside. The Nifty will be set for a larger bounce, once it crosses the near term barrier of 18050.
