WORLD MARKETS
US indices, after opening down by 1%-1.5%, recovered through the session with Dow closing just 0.2% lower while Nasdaq and S & P 500 ended marginally in the green as worries about global growth were offset by mostly better-than-expected U.S. earnings and economic reports.

OUTLOOK
Today morning Asian markets are trading mixed with modest changes. SGX Nifty is suggesting about 30 points higher opening for our market.
Just to remind our viewers, we have been bearish on Nifty ever since it closed below 7925 on 25th September, confirming a lower-top lower-bottom formation on the daily chart. Since then we have been maintaining that unless we see a resumption of the higher-top higher-bottom formation, the near term view will not turn bullish.
Immediate previous top on the daily chart now stands at 7928, which needs to be crossed for fulfilling above condition.
On the way down, having broken below the 7785 support, the benchmark has open up the possibility of the retest of the 7540 bottom, from where the rally till 8180 had begun. Before that 7650 would be the immediate support to eye.

HCL Tech and Axis Bank will report their quarterly earnings today.
