Similar to recent sessions, trading activity during the mid-session remained lackluster on Wednesday, with prices trading within a range. As European markets commenced their trading activity, we once again slipped lower, eventually ending the day with a loss of 0.34% a tad below 18,300, Rajesh Bhosale, Technical Analyst at Angel One said.

It appears that the market is awaiting a catalyst, and once it arrives, we might witness a surge in momentum, potentially during the monthly expiry session, Bhosle said.

“Looking ahead, the range of 18,200 – 18,400 is considered crucial, and if the lower end is breached, prices could retreat toward key support levels at 18,100 – 18,050. On the upside, a breakthrough beyond 18,400 may lead to further gains, potentially reaching and surpassing 18,500 in future sessions,” the Angel One analyst said.

Traders are advised to monitor these levels closely and adjust their trades accordingly, he added.

He was of the view that the real action lies within the midcap segment, and traders should focus on such opportunities.
