Indian Market Outlook:
Indian benchmark Nifty is steady at 8800 trading in a range for past few trading sessions as it awaits US Fed policy decision and possible timing of next interest rate hike. The dovish Fed can pull the markets higher and 9000 should be the next target on the upside. A hawkish Fed can take nifty down from previous week low of 8715 to 8560. There is a either side directional move waiting to happen. Yesterday, markets saw out performances from Chemical sector which notched big gainers like Chemfab alkali and India Glycol. Banking stocks were down but Yes Bank after a down wave of selling saw a handsome gain of 2 percent.
Nifty Futures is expected to open at 8795 as per SGX Nifty at 8:30 am IST, which is 8 points below its previous close of 8803.
