Expert view: Rising dollar index, higher 10-year bond yield are the near-term headwinds for the market

"The consolidation was triggered in the market in anticipation of tighter monetary policy by the US Fed and worries over a slowdown in global economic activity. The current risk reward is not favouring investors as the Nifty50 is now trading at a premium valuation of 21.5x P/E (1yr fwd basis), above the long-term average. Rising dollar index and higher US10 year bond yield act as the near-term headwinds for the market."

Nifty tech view: Fall below 17,400 may trigger further correction

"The Nifty slipped back below the falling trend line, indicating a failed breakout. On the lower end, the price has corrected towards the support zone of 17,500-17,400. Over the near term, a fall below 17,400 may trigger a further correction in the market. On the lower end, support is visible at 17,200/ 17,000. On the other hand, the Nifty may recover towards 17,700 if it doesn't fall below 17,400."
