How will the market evolve tomorrow?
Deepak Jasani of HDFC Securities It indicates that after the decision of the US Fed meeting, Nifty will either open a gap below 15500 or open a gap above 15886. Any dips to the downside could signal further weakness. On the other hand, in the event of a bullish breakout, pressure can be observed on the upper levels.
Ajit Mishra at Religare Broking Said that now the eyes of the market will be on the US Fed’s decision. The market is divided on the rise in interest rates of 0.50% and 0.75%. Besides the rate hike, the market will be watching comments from the US Fed. As such, market participants should keep their positions light until clarity comes.
Kunal Shah of LKP Securities The market is said to remain volatile ahead of the FOMC meeting decisions. Support is seen at 15500 on the downside for Nifty. Here we have to see the new writing put. If Nifty fails to hold above this level, we could see further selling. On the upside, resistance can be seen for Nifty at the 16000 level. Here we see the highest open interest (permanent trades) on the call side.

In Bank Nifty, we saw trading within a range. After the FOMC meeting, we can see a sudden movement on both sides. Bank Nifty might see the first upside hurdle at 34,000. If Nifty crosses that, we can see new short cover there. On the downside, support is seen in the 33000-32500 area for Nifty, which previously acted as a demand area for Nifty.
