Talking about the market performance today, Prashanth Tapse, senior VP of research at Mehta Equities said, “Markets failed to capitalise on its firm start but eked out modest gains on select buying support, as cautioned prevailed amongst investors ahead of US policy rate meeting later in the day.”

Rajesh Bhosale, equity technical analyst at Angel One said, “The range between 23400 and 23500 has emerged as a formidable resistance zone, consistently stalling morning upswings. Breaking through this zone remains crucial for triggering a fresh positive momentum, particularly for the weekly expiry, while 23200 serves as a pivotal support level. Traders are advised to monitor this key range of 23200 – 23500 closely, as a breakout could spark a significant movement on expiry day, warranting strategic trade placement.”
