Elsewhere in Asia, bourses in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul were trading with losses in mid-session deals, while the Tokyo stock exchange was closed on Wednesday.

Stock exchanges in the US ended with gains in the overnight session ahead of the Federal Reserve's policy outcome, scheduled for tonight.

Meanwhile, international oil benchmark Brent crude fell 1.24 per cent to $83.67 per barrel.

Commenting on the market, Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One, said traders are advised not to trade aggressively in the index, and in case of a recovery towards the mentioned resistance zone of 18000 – 18100, one should lighten up existing longs. Also, all eyes would be on Nifty Bank, because if Nifty has to reclaim these levels, it needs to continue its upwards trajectory with some intent.
