On the higher end, resistance is visible at 17,950. On the lower end, support is placed at 17,550/ 17,400."

Bank Nifty view: Bias remains buy on dip; fresh gains likely above 41,500

"The Bank Nifty index after a gap-up opening witnessed some profit booking around 41,500 levels. The index remains in a buy-on-dip mode with strong support at the 40,500-40,000 zone where aggressive put writing has been witnessed. The index once breaches above 41,500 will witness an extension of the up move towards 42,000 where the highest open interest is built up on the call side."

COMMENT:: Market pared gains owing to selling in FMCG, private bank shares

"The domestic market pared its early gains with FMCG and private banks pressuring the benchmark. Market attention has shifted to central bank policy announcements since the European Central Bank is expected to hike interest rates at its upcoming policy meeting. The impending US GDP data will give additional clarity to the expectation that the Fed will temper its aggression in regard to rate hikes."
