    Jateen Trivedi, Senior Research Analyst at LKP Securities:

    Rupee traded in a tight range on the back of FOMC rate decision and statement released in the US later in the night. Higher Crude prices and a firmer Dollar index above USD 90 keep rupee appreciation in check. The range for rupee can be seen between 73.20-73.55.

    Rahul Gupta, Head Of Research- Currency, Emkay Global Financial Services:

    The USDINR spot remains in the mid-range ahead of the FOMC announcement. If the FOMC pushes back tapering talk, it will dismiss the uptrend in spot. Otherwise any hint over the timing of tapering will continue the dollar rally, pushing the USDINR spot higher towards the crucial resistance of 73.50. A consistent trading above that will push prices towards 73.60-73.75, however a reversal may be bring the spot back to 72.75-73 zone.

    Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments:

    The Nifty managed to close above the support of 15700 which is a positive sign. If we break this level on a closing basis, the current trend would need to be evaluated again. A risk reward trade can be considered at these levels where the target would be 15900-16000 and a stop could be placed below the closing of 15700. Until we do not break 15700 on a closing basis, the current trend remains bullish.

    For the short term traders, an aggressive trade has not triggered yet for the Index while stock specific move continues; advice keeping a check on leveraged positions. For investors, the broader sentiment remains positive with buying on meaningful dips advisable. 

    Any correction on account of the FED meet outcome remains an opportunity to accumulate. IT and FMCG remain strong while select BFSI stocks can be bought at current levels.

    Ashis Biswas, Head of Technical Research at CapitalVia Global Research:

    The market continues to trade in a tight range between 15750-15900. In the first half bears tried to take control with the opening of the market but in the second half bulls take control of the market and market rallied from low of 15755.35 to 15825.25. Given the fact that most of the oscillators are trading at its extreme. A sideways movement is likely to continue till it breaches the resistance of 15900.

    Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities 

    After forming a Doji candle pattern in yesterday’s session, Nifty formed a bearish candle on the daily chart and closed at 15,767 with a loss of nearly one percent on June 16. Nifty reached its good support zone of 15,750. If it breaks this level, then some more slide towards the next support zone of 15,650 is possible. If it manages to hold above it then some decent pullback can be witnessed towards 15,850-15,900 zone where one can again lock their gains in longs.
