There was plenty of action on D-Street on Wednesday as index pared gains after hitting 11800 in intraday trade to close almost unchanged when compared to previous day’s close.

It was a volatile Wednesday and profit taking at a higher level is clearly visible.


The big disappointment came from the broader market which has been under pressure for quite some time now. Even though benchmark indices closed flat-to-higher, the carnage was seen in individual stocks largely from the broader market space.

The S&P BSE Midcap and Smallcap both ended with losses of 0.7 percent and 1.4 percent, respectively.

More than 500 stocks on the BSE hit their fresh 52-week low including Jain Irrigation, Jet Airways, Reliance Capital, Aksh Optifibre, Bosch, HEG, CARE Ratings, Indiabulls Housing Finance, Yes Bank, Lupin and TTK Healthcare, among others.

Markets will react to the outcome of the FOMC meeting on Thursday morning.

The rupee inched up 2 paise to end at 69.68 against the US dollar Wednesday ahead of the US Fed's interest rate decision. Hopes of a breakthrough in US-China trade talks and softening crude oil prices supported the local unit, forex traders said.

In terms of institutional flows, FPIs were net sellers in Indian markets for Rs 97 crore while the DIIs were also net sellers to the tune of Rs 104 crore, provisional data showed.

The index managed to defend its 50-day exponential moving average (11,659) and remained highly volatile in range of 175 points, forming a High Wave candlestick pattern on the daily chart.

If the index sustains above its 50-day EMA on closing basis then there could be a decent pullback attempt towards 11800.
