The Nifty which started on a positive note failed to hold on to momentum and witnessed profit booking near 10,900 levels and made a bearish candle on an intraday basis.

Traders preferred to book profits ahead of the crucial US Fed outcome but the positive takeaway is that the index managed to close above 10,850 levels which was the intraday high recorded earlier this week on Monday.

The Nifty index opened gap-up but failed to hold above 10,888 and consolidated in a narrow range with a support placed at 10,850-10,800 levels. On the higher side, resistance is placed at 10,930 levels.

Bank Nifty remained range bound for the most part of the trading session but trading range is slightly shifting higher towards immediate hurdle of 26,750 zones.

The Nifty which opened at 10,887 rose to an intraday high of 10,893 but failed to hold on to morning gains and slipped towards 10,850. The index closed 13.85 points higher at 10,856.70.

“Despite a strong gap-up opening, bulls appears to have adopted a cautious stance ahead of the US Fed event as during the course of the day they have given up all the gains which resulted in a small bearish candle formation on intraday basis,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, Chartviewindia.in, told Moneycontrol.

“Though imminent weakness is not visible, as all short term oscillators on lower time frame charts are in still buy mode, a close below 10,800 may set the tone for bear domination. On the other hand a close above 10,930 shall confirm strength there by paving

the way for retest of life time highs present around 11,170 levels,” he said.

It looks prudent on the part of short-term traders to focus on individual stock specific opportunities with a stop below 10,800 on closing basis.

India VIX fell down by 1.65 percent at 12.52 levels. On the options front, maximum Put OI is placed at 10,700 followed by 10,600 strikes while maximum Call OI is placed at 11,000 followed by 10,900 strikes.
