Nifty technical view: A reasonable positive candle was formed on the daily chart, post weakness of few sessions. “Technically, this pattern indicates an upside bounce in the market. The Nifty has moved up on Tuesday from near the important cluster support of around 18100 levels. This is a positive indication. The positive chart pattern like higher tops and bottoms continued on the daily chart and the recent swing low of 18133 could now be considered as a new higher bottom. We need confirmation of further upside to call this as a higher bottom reversal pattern,” said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

Levels to watch for: “According to the option chain, the largest open interest for calls is 18300, which will operate as immediate resistance, while the highest open interest for puts is 18200, which will work as support. Bank Nifty has technical support at 42100 and resistance at 42600. Bank Nifty is trading in a range of 43000 to 42000, with the highest Call OI and Put OI,” said Ameya Ranadive, Equity Research Analyst, Choice Broking.

Fed meeting minutes: Investors will look forward to the release of the Federal Reserve’s meeting minutes. While the report will be from the last FOMC meeting, investors are eager to see if there are any clues as to the Fed’s thinking heading into the last meeting of the calendar year next month. The market is expecting another interest rate increase. However, public comments by some Fed officials in recent days indicate that the US central bank might be leaning towards a smaller amount. In the previous meetings, the Fed raised rates four consecutive times by 0.75% each, and now it could raise by only a half-percentage point in December.
