The Asian markets are trading higher except Hang Seng. The U.S. Futures and the European Futures are flat.

SGX NIFTY is trading at 17,360 indicating a huge gap-up opening in NIFTY.

Major supports for NIFTY are at 17,250, 17,200, 17,100 and 17,000.  We can expect resistances at 17,300, 17,325, 17,375, 17,400, 17,500 and 17,550.

BANK NIFTY has supports at  36,500, 36,300, 36,200 and 36,000. Resistances are at 36,800, 37,000, 37,200 and 37,500.

The Fed decision was in line with the expectations and when that happened, the US markets shot up. The tapering rate will be doubled and the Fed will end bond purchase by March 2022. Following the West, the Asian markets also rallied with the exception of Hong Kong.

BANK NIFTY was holding the market to an extent in the beginning but lost strength towards the close. There is a W pattern formed in the day candle chart which indicates a possible breakout if 37,350 is crossed. The level to watch in BANK NIFTY would be 36,500 breaking which the index can go further down to test 36,000.

NIFTY has a strong support at 17,200. Seeing the chance for a gap-up, 17,400 has to be closely watched if NIFTY rallies. Option sellers should enter a safe position today as there can be intraday volatility but without a rise in VIX that can kill the premium making the adjustments difficult.
