Bulls strengthened their control over Dalal Street on September 20, helping the benchmark indices gain 1 percent following an uptrend in Asian peers, though other global peers were under pressure ahead of the outcome of the Federal Reserve meeting.

The BSE Sensex jumped 578 points to 59,720, while the Nifty50 rose 194 points to 17,816 and formed a decent bullish candle which resembles the Shooting Star kind of pattern formation on the daily charts.

"On the daily charts, the Nifty tried to feel the upside gap but was unable to close the gap and formed Shooting Star candle pattern indicating selling pressure at higher levels. However, it has managed to sustain above its 20-day SMA (simple moving average - 17,692) with the formation of the higher top higher bottom," Vidnyan Sawant, AVP - Technical Research at GEPL Capital said.

The momentum indicator RSI (relative strength index) is moving in an upward direction and placed at the 56 mark which shows the momentum is on the slightly positive side.

The Nifty has an immediate resistance level placed at 17,918 (day high), followed by 18,096 (swing high) and on the other side, it has a strong support level placed at 17,667 (Gap Support) followed by 17,429 (3 days low).

Close

As per the overall chart pattern and indicator set-up, Vidnyan feels that the Nifty is not giving clear clue before the FOMC meet. However, it is positively biased and the broader range of the Nifty will be 17,380 - 18,096 levels for the short to medium term.

The broader markets also participated in rally as the Nifty Midcap 100 and Smallcap 100 indices climbed more than one percent each.
