"Nifty has closed above 17,700 for the day following a range-bound trading session. On the daily chart, the index has fallen below the falling trend line suggesting a waning bullishness. The daily RSI is in a bearish crossover on the daily chart indicating a falling momentum. The trend for the near term may remain sideways to positive as long as the index closes above 17,700. However, a decisive fall below 17,700 may trigger a correction in the market. On the lower end, below 17,700, Nifty may fall towards 17,500/17,350. On the higher end, resistance is visible at 17,850-17,900," said Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities.

"Markets across the globe were trading with considerable volatility ahead of the Fed policy announcement. A 75 bps hike by Fed was factored in by the markets, while reports of mobilising Russian forces in Ukraine have escalated geopolitical tension and fears of rising inflation. Any military escalation will have a significant effect on the world & domestic economy. This will have an influence on the near-term trend of the global market and implications on the local market can be high as it is trading at premium prices compared to the world," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
