US markets rise, but does Nifty have enough power to go higher?

Good Morning Everyone, Nifty continued its bull run yesterday and closed higher by 0.29% at 18055. Majorly led by the IT sector due to positive sentiments on the quarterly results of TCS, Infy, and Wipro due today.


FIIs continue to be net buyers yesterday, but the volume is still low in buying. We need to keep a watch on that.


Meanwhile, US markets rallied yesterday after Powell testified that inflation will be kept in control keeping the economy in mind, which was positive for the market.


As for today 18100 - 18200 will act as a resistance for the Nifty, while support is seen at 17800-17950.
