OUTLOOK
Today morning, Nikkei is down more than 2% on strengthening yen. Other Asian markets are trading with average cuts of a percent. SGX Nifty is trading at 7880, which is 15 point lower than Tuesday’s closing of Nifty future.
In the assembly election held yesterday, Haryana recorded all-time high 73% turnout while Maharashtra saw 64% turnout. Most of the exit polls predicted that BJP will form government in both the states.
While Nifty has been repeatedly bouncing back from the crucial 7785 support, we have been indicating that the resumption of higher-top higher-bottom formation is required to turn the near term view bullish. Therefore, in Tuesday’s report we had termed 7785-7972 a no-trading zone where 7972 is the immediate previous top on the daily chart.
That continues to be the view. Traders are advised to wait for the crossover of 7785-7972 range on either side for taking a fresh view on Nifty. A breach of 7785 can take Nifty all the way to 7540 while a crossover of 7972 can take it in the vicinity of 8180.
