Emkay Global Financial Services:

There are no fresh triggers in the fx market and the USDINR spot is stuck with in a tight range of 74.20-74.55. It is a truncated week, with inflation playing a major hindrance to the risk appetite.

So the only focus remains on whether Fed members’ express their worry over inflation, supporting the uptrend in DXY. But overall we expect the spot to continue trading in between 74-74.65.

Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities:

One more round of selling witnessed in today’s session and the index closed a day at 17900 with loss of more than half percent forming a bearish candle for the third consecutive day. 

The index managed to breach its rising trend line support of 17900 zone which hints we may see more pressure if the index continued to trade below 17900 zone towards 17800-17700 zone which are next supports for Nifty and resistance is coming near 17950-18000 zone and above 18k mark only we may see good strength.
