We can see some more movement in mid and small cap segment as a catch-up rally after the recent under-performance compared to blue chips stocks. On the technical front, the market is witnessing a range-bound movement and it has sustained well above 17,400-450 levels and we believe this up move will extend till 17650 level in the short term. On the downside 17,200 is the immediate support in Nifty 50 followed by 16,900.”
