Taking positive cues from the Asian markets, the Nifty and the Sensex started the day in the green. The Nikkei 225 added 107 points or 0.47 per cent to 22,865 and the Hang Seng index gained 358 points or 1.15 per cent to 31,480.

After an initial rally, both the Nifty and the Sensex began to experience selling pressure and slipped into the negative territory. The Nifty Small and Mid-cap indices are witnessing selling pressure and have plunged about 0.8 and 0.7 per cent, respectively.

On the other hand, the India VIX index, which measures the volatility, is up 3.14 per cent to 14.4 levels.

However, after witnessing selling pressure, the contract started to decline from this high. It breached an immediate support at 10,825 and recorded an intra-day low of 10,796.

A decisive breach above 10,825 can take the contract higher to 10,850.To strengthen the up move, the contract needs to conclusive rally above 10,850 levels. Next resistances are at 10,875 and 10,900 levels.
