Stock Market News: Ahead of the most-awaited US Fed meeting today, the Indian indices surged expecting some positive outcome from the Fed chief. The BSE Sensex surged 172 points and closed at 40,412 levels after the Closing Bell while the Nifty-50 index soared 53 points and closed at 11,910 levels. Bank Nifty index gained 96 points and closed at 31,256 levels.
Speaking on the current share market Simi Bhaumik, a SEBI registered technical equity analyst said, "Nifty has support at 1,900 levels. If the Nifty sustains above this level then we can expect it to further scale up to 12,100 levels. However, if it breaks 11,900 levels then we can expect further downside trend up to 11,760 to 11,800 levels." She said that Bank Nifty is under pressure and due to profit-booking in the banking counters, there can be some added pressure on the major Indian indices like Sensex and Nifty.
