OUTLOOK
Markets in Hong Kong, Japan and Taiwan are shut for public holidays, Other Asian markets are trading mixed with modest changes and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 20 points higher start for our market.
In Friday’s report we had reiterated the view that 8690 was the immediate support, a sustained trading below 8690 would generate a sell on the hourly chart and would pave the way for the further correction.
The benchmark, on Friday touched a low of 8664, but recovered to close at 8698, holding on to 8690 support on closing basis.
Now 8651 is the 61.8% retracement level of the recent 8555-8807 upmove and therefore Nifty has been finding support in this 8690-8650 region for past two sessions. Once 8650 is taken out, 8555 would be the next support to eye.

Meanwhile 8800 continue to be important hurdle on the daily chart, a crossover of which will also mark a trendline breakout and would pave the way for the retest of the 8970 top made in early September.
