Globally, the US Federal Reserve has warned investors about rising interest rates, rising US bond yields, high inflation and rising crude oil prices. High yields and rising interest rates make risky assets less attractive to emerging markets, leaving them out of the reach of foreign investors. From a technical point of view, the Nifty may find some relief after four consecutive days of losses. Nagraj Shetty, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities, said, "The Nifty has support near 17,500-17,600 and the market could bounce back from this level. If the Nifty stays above 17,600 in the coming session, it is likely to return to 18,100-18,200." Analyst Nagraj Shetty said. . The decline in the last four sessions is just a retreat of the ups and downs of recent weeks, Shetty said.
