Good Morning, Everyone, The market has been really bullish for the last 2 days and global markets continue to be positive as people have forgotten the Omicron virus and are on a positive mode. However with 2 days of rally, we may see some consolidation and as I have been telling, 17500-17550 has been a major resistance, and we can consider the market bullish only after a strong close above that, and on the bottom, 16800-16900 remains a major support zone. Let's keep a watch on it.

On the daily timeframe, Nifty has shown a strong bullish candle, however, with such a rise in the last 2 days, we might see some consolidation today.
Every index was up yesterday, major led by the small-cap.
All sectors closed in the green, majorly led by PSU banks and the auto sector, which was up more than 2%.
Bajaj Finance, Maruti, Hindalco & SBIN were among the top gainers, up close to 3%.
Only 5 stocks are slightly in red, in the Nifty 50 pack.
Stocks closed modestly higher on Wall Street Wednesday after a day of choppy trading. The tech-heavy Nasdaq rose 0.6 percent. The Dow Jones rose nearly 0.1 percent. And S&P 500 rose over 0.3 percent.
US investment bank JP Morgan predicted on Wednesday that 2022 will mark the end of the coronavirus pandemic and see a full global economic recovery. The bank's outlook report for next year said new vaccines and therapeutics would result in a "strong cyclical recovery, a return of global mobility, and a release of pent-up demand from consumers.
Marko Kolanovic, its Chief Global Markets Strategist & Co-Head of Global Research, said the bank expected the US S&P 500 to rise nearly 8 percent to 5050 points, emerging market stocks to surge 18 percent, and 10-year US Treasury yields - a key driver of global borrowing costs - to rise to 2.25 percent by the end of 2022.
US job openings surged in October while hiring decreased, suggesting a worsening worker shortage, which could hamper employment growth and the overall economy. Job openings, a measure of labor demand, increased by 431,000 to 11.0 million on the last day of October. This was the second-highest on record.
Asian shares were trading mixed this morning as investors assessed risks posed by the Omicron variant. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up over 0.4 percent. Japan's Nikkei index was down 0.05 percent. Chinese blue chips were trading flat-to-positive. And South Korea’s Kospi was up 0.7 percent. Elsewhere, Australian shares declined marginally.
Japan's economy shrank slightly faster than initially reported in the third quarter, as a sharp rise in local COVID-19 cases hit private consumption and a global chip supply shortage hurt corporate sentiment.
Japan's economy declined an annualised 3.6% in July-September, revised Cabinet Office data showed Wednesday, worse than the preliminary reading of a 3.0% contraction.
Trends on SGX Nifty indicate a positive opening for the broader index in India with a gain of 76 points.
