The short-term trend is still positive. For day traders, the 17900 levels could be the immediate hurdle, and below the same, the correction wave could continue up to 17750-17710 levels.
On the flip side, if the Nifty moves above 17900, the uptrend continuation formation is likely to continue up to 17950-18000 levels.

The index formed another small negative candle was formed on the daily chart with minor upper and lower shadows. Technically, this pattern indicates a consolidation movement in the market for the last two sessions post-sharp-up move of Thursday.
The short-term trend of Nifty continues to be range bound. This consolidation movement could continue for the next 1-2 sessions before showing the upside breakout of the range movement.
A decisive move above 17950 is likely to open the next upside of 18200 levels in the near term. Important lower support is placed at 17650.

The broader market is seeing a lack of buying/participation while the large-caps are seeing rotational buying with Auto coming back in favour while IT going out.
However, large-scale sell-off is not yet seen in the markets and hence hopes of Nifty touching the 18000 level over the next few days still remains alive.
Expert: Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities.
The index managed to close a day at 17855 & formed a bearish candle for a second consecutive day. A strong base is formed near 17800-17740 zone holding above said levels we may see northward movement to continue.
Any dip around said levels can use as to add fresh longs with keeping stop out level below 17700 zone, the strong hurdle is coming near 17930 followed by 18k mark where one can look for to lock their long gains.
