Moreover, alarming increase in covid-19 cases in Europe and Britain pushed the greenback higher against the basket of currencies denting the appeal for the dollar denominated Gold.

The index found support near the crucial weekly moving averages as well as near the 200 DMA, which pushed the index higher on September 25. The overall structure, however, shows that the Nifty is likely to face selling pressure at higher levels. 11100-11130 is an immediate resistance zone where the pullback can subside. So, the index is likely to get into a sideways action over the next few sessions. The expected range for the Nifty will be 11100 - 10800."

"Stimulus measures, if any, in the US could provide support to the markets. If the market corrects from these levels, then investors should actively look for accumulating good quality stocks for long term wealth creation," said Sanjeev Zarbade, VP PCG Research, Kotak Securities.
