Bulls are back on Dalal Street after easing fears related to FOMC outcome, which turned out to be dovish commentary. Will the bull party continue in the coming sessions?

If the index manages to climb and sustain above the resistance for a few days, then 19,500-19,600 can be possible areas to watch. Till then, the index may remain in the range of 18,900-19,200 zone.

The market extended upward journey for yet another session on October 30, but will that northward move continue in coming sessions?

The GIFT Nifty hints at a mildly higher start for the Indian market. Investors will also watch out for the RBI policy outcome today. The central bank is likely to keep repo rate unchanged but the commentary is expected to be hawkish. Meanwhile, stocks in focus today are Bajaj Finance, PB Fintech and Godrej Consumer.
