Stock Market Opening Bell Today: On account of global and domestic investors awaiting US Fed meeting outcome, the Indian stock market today opened sideways in the opening bell. NSE Nifty gained 11 points and touched 11,533 mark in the opening bell today while the BSE Sensex rose 49 points and hit 39,094 mark. Bank Nifty shed 30 points and hit 22,437 levels.
Speaking on the current stock market trends Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical stock analyst said, “Market is rading range-bound and the NSE Nifty is facing strong hurdle at 11,550. Once it breaks this level then we can expect Nifty to scale up to 11,700 to 11,800 mark with ease. However, in case the profit-booking triggers at current hurdle, then the immediate support for the 50-stocks index is at 11,350 while the strong support is 11,200.”
