Nifty lost more than 90 points to close below 7250, thus breaching the short term support of 7265 and becoming bearish. Derivative closing appears to have precipitated the fall.  For short term,  buying may be avoided  till it closes above 7350. While Global cues, Quarterly results   and  Funds flow  are expected to broadly guide the market movement, based on the present market position , market can be expected to  be better during midsession and remain subdued towards close.

The benchmark Sensex today plunged 322 points, logging its biggest single-day drop in four months, weighed down by a sharp 8 per cent sell-off in Infosys shares after a key executive quit, amid expiry of monthly equity derivative contracts. The Sensex resumed lower at 24,523.13 and continued to lose momentum to touch an intra-day low of 24,206.50. It settled at 24,234.15, down 321.94 points or 1.31 per cent -- its biggest fall since the 426.11-point crash on January 27. This closing level is Sensex's lowest since 24,298.02 on May 21. It had ended higher by 6.58 points yesterday. The 50-share NSE index Nifty dipped below 7,300 mark by falling 94.00 points, or 1.28 per cent, to close at 7,235.65 after shuttling between 7,325.40 and 7,224.40 intra-day. It was bad session for IT stocks led by Infosys. The Bangalore-headquartered giant ended 7.81 per cent lower to end below the crucial Rs 3,000 mark for the first time since mid-September 2013 after board member and President B G Srinivas, who was considered among the top contenders for the first non-founder CEO post, resigned from the company. Wipro fell by 2.63 per cent and HCL Tech, which is not a Sensex entity, slid 2.5 per cent. However, TCS rose. Besides, expiry of May month series in the derivative contracts and persistent foreign capital outflows coupled with mixed global cues also affected the market sentiment, pulling down the benchmark indices. Tepid earnings from some bluechips also dashed hopes, say traders. There was also continued profit-booking in recent outperformers such as power, oil and gas, capital goods, banking, PSUs, realty and consumer durable stocks, they added. Out of the 30-share Sensex, 22 stocks closed with losses led by Infosys, the third most influential on the barometer. Oil refinery major Reliance Industries fell 1.42 per cent after CAG pulled up the firm for charging a rate in excess of the government approved price for its KG-D6 gas field. Sectorally, the BSE IT sector index suffered the most by falling 3.44 per cent, followed by Tech index (2.92 per cent), Oil and gas index (1.64 per cent). Overall, 11 of 12 indices fell while BSE Healthcare index rose.
