Market view: Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services

A near term trend reversal is visible in the domestic market, supported by valuation comfort and positive trend in the global counterparts. US stocks were boosted on softening inflation worries which will be a crucial factor in deciding the tone of the upcoming Fed policy meeting. The easing of long-running lockdown in China also helped in lifting the sentiments across Asian markets. The market is expected to have a positive run in the near term; however, the impact of central bank policies will be a key factor to be monitored.

Technical View: Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities

Nifty has cleared the consolidation zone on the daily chart as it closed with a breakaway gap on the daily chart. On the higher end, however, it found resistance at 16700 before closing a bit lower. The trend remains positive till the Nifty sustains above 16400. On the higher end, a decisive move above 16700 may induce a rally towards 17200.
