After having rallied sharply over the past week or so, markets finally took a breather ahead of the Fed’s decision on policy rate hike. 

Traders preferred to book some profit in selective counters to avoid being caught off guard on worries of a sharp correction worldwide in case the rate hike is above the expectation and the Fed maintains a hawkish stance. 

Technically, on daily charts the Nifty has formed a small bearish candle with double top formation on intraday charts. For the index, 18,000 and 17,950 would act as key support zones, while 18,200-18,250 would be the immediate hurdle.
