OUTLOOK
Today morning Asian markets are trading mixed with modest changes. SGX Nifty is trading around 8250, which is down about 75 points compared to Friday’s close of Nifty futures.
Readers would recall that we have been cautious on Nifty for last two months or so owing to steep six-month run up seen between March-August after which the benchmark was very close to 9119 top made in last March. After 8500, the bottom of the two-month consolidation phase was broken, we were working with targets of 8300 and 8150, where 8300 was the 34-week moving average and 8150 was the 38.2% retracement level of the entire 6825-8970 upmove.
The benchmark achieved both the above targets and went further to touch the 34-month moving average placed at 8000.
8000, being 34-month average, continues to be crucial support to eye. Before that 8230, the 61.8% retracement level of the recent 8000-8600 pullback, would be the immediate support to eye. A sustained trading below 8230 would open up the possibility of the retest of 8000 bottom.

On the way up, 8460 is the immediate hurdle on the hourly chart above which 8600 would be the major resistance to eye.
