Also series of mega rate cuts from the banks during the start of new year brings more downside fear to the participants.

With the given extreme negative sector sentiment, bank nifty also under-performed the benchmark index nifty 50 drastically followed by four day of consolidation as visual from the daily market profile charts.

Which is a warning sign not to trade against the trend anymore – though most of the trader loves to trade inline with the news sentiment.
