    14,700 crucial for strong uptrend

    "We have crossed the 14,700 mark today. What needs to be seen is if the Nifty is able to sustain above this level for a day or two. If we are successful in doing so, the markets can scale up to 15,100-15,200. On the flip side, if this poses to be a resistance level, we could drop back to 14,400 and continue downwards to 14,000-14,100. We are in a "wait and watch" situation and have to tread this phase patiently," said Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst at Deen Dayal Investments.

    Silver likely to remain in the bullish trend 

    "Dovish Fed comments on Wednesday are supportive for precious metals; silver prices have additional support  from increasing global economic optimism due to vaccination drive and relaxation in COVID-19 lockdown in leading economies such as US and Eurozone. As per reports on Wednesday, the number of vaccinations administered against the coronavirus has reached more than 1.1 billion globally. Still rising coronavirus cases globally are a major cause of concern," said Abhishek Bansal, Founder Chairman at Abans Group. The overall global COVID-19 caseload has topped 154.7 million, while the deaths have surged to more than 3.23 million, according to the Johns Hopkins University.
