Expert view: Investors remained cautious ahead of US Fed chair's remarks

"Investors' lack of confidence and caution in anticipation of the Fed chair's remarks led to a significant sell-off towards the close of the session. Western markets are trading with cuts as they await clues on further policy actions by the Fed to tame elevated inflation. This is expected to impact demand. On the sectoral front, metals and PSBs led the rally, while IT turned green after continued selling pressure."

Tech view: Nifty may remain rangebount, with resistance at 17,700

"The benchmark index remained volatile during the day. On the higher end, it failed to move beyond 17,700. The downside on the other hand were limited to 17,500. On the daily chart, a small-bodied candle with shadows on either side has formed, suggesting an indecisiveness. The trend is likely to remain sideways over the near term till Nifty remains in the range. Support on the lower end is visible at 17,500/ 17,400. On the higher end, resistance is visible at 17,700."
