    Anindya Banerjee, DVP, Currency Derivatives & Interest Rate Derivatives at Kotak Securities:

    The spot rupee closed 7 paise higher on the back of strength in the US Dollar Index and weakness in domestic stocks. However, the gains were limited due to quarter end selling from IT companies and IPO-related inflows. Over the near term, we expect a range between 74.00 and 74.80 on spot levels.

    Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities:

    Investors booked profit on the expiry day due to lack of fresh triggers and tepid global cues. Benchmark Nifty is hovering within the range of 17,600-17,780 and on intraday charts it has formed a lower top formation which is largely negative. However, the medium term structure is still positive. 

    The intraday trading setup suggests 17,700 could act as a strong resistance level, and below the same the correction could continue up to 17,500-17,450 levels. On the flip side, beyond 17,700 the immediate hurdle would be the 17,750 level. On the contrary, any revival could lift the index up to 17,800.

    Palak Kothari, Research Associate at Choice Broking:

    Technically, the Nifty has formed a bearish candle on a daily time frame though the index is taking support from 21-DMA. Closing below the same can show a correction in the next trading sessions. 

    Furthermore, the index has been trading below 21 & 50 HMA, which suggests some correction can be seen in the upcoming session. 

    Momentum indicator MACD is also showing negative crossover, which adds weakness in the counter. At present, the Nifty has immediate support at 17,500 while resistance comes at 17,900 levels.

    Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities:

    Index closed the day at 17618 with a loss of half a percent and formed a bearish candle on daily chart. One more expiry ended on a positive note with gains of 6 percent. Going forwards immediate support is coming near 17,540-17,440 zone and if managed to hold above mentioned supports area one can expect a bounce & we may see prices to move again towards immediate hurdle zone of 17700-17800 zone.

    Overall structure looks consolidating & on broader term we may see index to consolidate in the range of 17,300-18,000 mark & either side breakout will decide the final direction.

    Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services:

    Indian market opened on a flat note and slipped in the later half tracking weak global cues and fall in heavyweights. Worries over the US debt ceiling crisis and uptick in bond yield triggered further consolidation. The domestic market also got vigilant ahead the release of August’s core sector output data.

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

    The market witnessed some volatile movements and an attempt to hold the level around the Nifty 50 Index level of 17,600. The market shows that it is going to be crucial for the short-term market scenario to sustain above the 17,550-17,600 support zone. 

    If the market is able to sustain the level of 17,550-17,600, it can witness higher levels of 18,000. Technical indicator suggests, a volatile movement in the market in a small range between 17,600-18,000.
