Addressing a gathering on Friday, Prime Minister Modi said, “Those who profit from financial markets must make a fair contribution to nation-building through taxes”.

Finance Minster Jaitley however later clarified that “This interpretation is absolutely erroneous; the Prime Minister has made no such statement directly or indirectly,”.
OUTLOOK
Today morning Asian markets are trading mixed with modest changes and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 50 points lower start for our market.
Readers would recall that we have been negative on Nifty ever since 20-DMA support of 8120 was taken out. We were working with an initial target of 8057, which was the bottom made in early December, below which we had said that the benchmark could retest 7916 bottom made in November.
Nifty on Friday touched a low of 7942, coming in very close to 7916 target, before closing at 7986.
7916-7900 continues to be important downside support to eye. As we have been mentioning 7900 is the 50% retracement level of the entire 6825-8970 upmove and upon a decisive breach of 7900, next meaningful support will come only around 7650, which is the 61.8% retracement level of of the aforementioned upmove.
Immediate hurdle on the hourly chart has moved lower to 8080, with the stop-loss of which trading shorts should be held on to.

U.S. markets will be closed today in observance of the Christmas holiday.
