Indian market consolidated for a fourth consecutive day in a row on Wednesday largely led by weak global cues. The Nifty slipped below its two crucial support level of 9,150 and 9,050 respective as it registered its biggest fall of the year 2017.

The Nifty which closed below its crucial support level of 13-days exponential moving average (EMA) placed at 9,038 made a bearish candle which closely resembles that of an ‘Inverted Hammer’ on the daily candlestick charts.
