"This market is an ideal sell on rise market where one is advised to sell around resistance levels and book profit near support as 16,800 is immediate support for the index while 17,050 and 17,200 are two crucial resistance for SGX Nifty today," said Anuj Gupta, Vice President — Research at IIFL Securities.

Credit Suisse crisis

Credit Suisse share price hit fresh all-time low on second successive day on Wednesday as its major shareholders declined to pump further money into the Switzerland's second-biggest bank.

Credit Suisse share price ended over 24 per cent lower at 1.70 Swiss Frank per share.

US dollar to INR

US dollar gained some buying momentum on Wednesday and regained the psychological 104 levels. In morning deals on Thursday, Dollar Index sustained above 104 levels despite some profit booking during Thursday deals.

Speaking on US dollar to INR, Anuj Choudhary - Research Analyst at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas said, "We expect Rupee to trade with a negative bias on risk aversion in global markets and expectations of a recovery in Dollar. Fresh FII outflows may also weigh on Rupee. There are rising odds of a 25-bps rate hike by Fed in its FOMC meeting next week. Traders may take cues from trade balance data from India and Empire State Manufacturing Index, PPI and retail sales data from US. Investors may remain vigilant amid contagion concerns from the US banking crisis. USDINR spot price is expected to trade in a range of 82 to 83."
