    Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities:

    Index closed a day on a positive note at 14,745 with gains of more than one percent and formed bullish piercing candle pattern on the daily chart which stands for a bullish reversal. Once Nifty cross above 14,800 zone, bullish piercing pattern will get active and we may see a good move towards immediate hurdle zone of 14,900-15,000, supports still at 14,650-14,580 zone and holding above said levels, the structure can be positive.

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

    The forex market is still jittery about Fed’s move and there are speculations of an early rate-hike which are keeping the US Yields higher. There is also an upside risk to the rapid spread of coronavirus which will keep USDINR spot afloat. But until the spot is trading below 73 zone, the trend will be sideways to bearish within 72.10-72.80. The USDINR spot has to consistently trade above the resistance of 73 to breach 73.20-73.25 zone.

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

    The market witnessed some swift recovery from its short-term support around the Nifty50 Index level of 14,400 today. The expected level should range between 14,600-14,900, and it’s going to crucial for the short-term market scenario to sustain above 14,400. 

    Technical evidence is still aligned to support a range-bound trading activity to continue. As such, investors are advised to approach the market from buying in deep while covering seeing a rally to adopt. Multiple momentum indicators are not confirming their bias between themselves. Lack of weight of evidence indicates a sideways market structure is likely.
