OUTLOOK
China’s official manufacturing PMI has come in unchanged from the previous month at 51.1.
Asian markets are trading mixed with modest changes and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 20 points lower opening for our market.
For past two days, we have been mentioning that while Nifty had rebounded from an important trendline support placed around 7840, the near term trend will turn bullish only after the resumption of the higher-top higher-bottom formation on the daily chart. We had also mentioned that 8038, the 61.8% retracement level of the recent 8160-7842 fall, is the immediate resistance to eye.
Nifty, after touching a high of 8031, plunged to close at 7965 yesterday, vindicating our view.
8038 continues to be important immediate resistance, a crossover of which is required to negate the immediate bearish view. 7842, the low made last week, continues to be immediate support.
Auto companies will report their September sales figures. 

Indian markets will remain shut tomorrow, on Friday and on Monday on account of Mahatma Gandhi Jayanthi, Dussehra and Bakri Id respectively.
