Investors wound up their short positions on the expiry day, triggered by US Fed minutes indicating a moderate pace of rate hikes going ahead that eventually propelled Sensex to new all-time high. Other positive catalysts such as the WTI crude oil prices staying sluggish and the falling US Dollar index and yields improved the risk appetite of investors leading to a broad-based buying. Technically, on daily charts the Nifty has now formed a long bullish candle and is also holding higher high and higher low formation on daily and intraday charts which is broadly positive. For traders, as long as the index holds the support of 18400, there are chances it could hit 18600-18700 levels. On the other hand, below 18400 the uptrend would be vulnerable.
