SBI Price Action Analysis reveals the Negative bias of Investors

SBI Share prices - Fundamental factors influencing the stock price

Share prices plunged on concern that forced mergers might lead to higher provisioning for Bad loans which can drag down the profit margins of good PSU Banks and might cause liquidity crunch. Recent Government proposal to merge 3 major PSU banks, Dena Bank, Bank of Baroda and Vijaya Bank has caused a major unease among Investors and Shareholders. Recent issues of liquidity problems in the economy further influenced the negative bias of Investors.

Technically most of PSU Bank stocks are in downtrend from last few months. Market participants fear that more consolidation and merger proposals are on the track which could alleviate liquidity crises. Consolidating small banks with weak financials into bigger ones can trigger further downfall, as shares of the consolidated banks must be liquidated. Traders and Investors must keep a close watch on this theme, which can drive the market sentiment in coming weeks. Generally taking non – directional option trades combined with Price action setups can yield better results in these types of environment.
