US stocks rallied on Tuesday, with the S&P 500 closing in on record levels, as President Donald Trump's comments on the United States and China restarting trade talks added to optimism over the prospect of a more accommodative Federal Reserve.
Trump said he would meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit later this month, and that trade talks between the two countries would restart after a long lull.
We expect Nifty to make some attempts to gain stability and some mild technical pullback can happen. However, pullbacks, just like today, are expected to remain limited. We recommend market participants to remain highly stock specific and avoid aggressive bets on either side

No technical parameter at this juncture has generated a ‘buy’ signal on lower time frame charts. Hence, if the index slips below 11,641 level in the next session, it can head to test its critical support placed around 11,591 from where some stability can be expected on the upside

Nifty makes a bullish Harami on the edge of its rising window. After an unusually long bearish candle, we have seen a Bullish Harami being formed on the daily scale. Nifty was able to sustain its previous day low while the day's range was well within the previous candle.

Nifty formed a Small-Bodied candle at its crucial support of 50-day EMA, and has been forming lower highs and lows for past five sessions. Now it has to negate the formation of lower highs by surpassing the 11,727 mark to get some stability and bounce towards 11,761 and then 11,820 levels, while a failed attempt would mean the weakness will continue till 11,600 and 11,550 levels
We maintain our cautious stance on Indian market. The near-term movement is likely to be driven by monsoon progress (which has been delayed) as well as global indicators. The outcome of US Fed meet (scheduled for June 18-19) will be keenly watched. Moreover, crude oil prices and rupee movement amid trade tension between US- China and US-Iran conflict is likely to keep markets volatile

Market ended positive supported by easing in oil prices due to concern over global growth, trade wars and uncertainties in upcoming Opec meeting. There was a hope that the weakening domestic market will be supported by fiscal and monetary measures. This hope is being tested today given continuous weak economic and monsoon data. Market will be careful during the ongoing Fed meeting which is expected to provide a dovish
