The index has broken down from trendline support that is formed joining the recent lows, confirming a weakening uptrend. Going ahead, if the bears pull the index below the immediate support of 15,700, selling pressure could intensify to 15,650-15,600 levels. On the flipside, if the bulls manage to push Nifty50 above 15,850, the current weakening trend will reverse, taking it back to 15,950 levels. Technical indicator RSI has also turned down below the 60 level, indicating the uptrend is losing steam.
